If that doesn’t work try updating IPtables on MAAS with something like this:

$ sudo iptables -A FORWARD -m conntrack --ctstate ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT
$ sudo iptables -t nat -F POSTROUTING
$ sudo iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE
$ sudo iptables-save | sudo tee /etc/iptables.sav

Edit /etc/rc.local and add the following lines before the “exit 0” line:

$ iptables-restore < /etc/iptables.sav
