unable to exchange Iperf tcp traffic between BT and VM in GPO rack

Created a sliver EG-MON-4-exp2 that includes 1 VM and one Bare Metal node. Able to exchange traffic between the two hosts, but am not able to exchange iperf TCP traffic it fails with a "No route to host" even though a route exists:

root@debian:~# /sbin/ifconfig eth1

Also tried iperf UDP, and it reports the "No route to host" failure, but it runs to completion:

root@debian:~# iperf -c -t 10 -u

After re-creating the sliver, this just works... Strange! Will recreate the sliver sever times to determine how often the "No Route to Host" problem occurs.
