Why exactly is that? I don't see what one has to do with the other?
I'm actually not exactly sure, but I think it is because a bridge
needs to have a valid MAC-address? And the datacenter doesn't allow
(eg. they block) data from unknown sources/MAC addresses. That said, I
haven't tested it, but their documentation mentions the use of a
routed network in virtual environments, as bridges will not work.
