  • VMWare Network Trouble.

    Ok right now I have little problem. I can start up my virutal machines and they can talk to each other and then outside to the physical machines on the network which is great and exactly what I wanted. However I can no longer talk to the host os Machine from my physical network

    Here is my current Configuration

    Host Machine
    3 network cards
    1 bound to smoothwall firewall appliance 192.168.0.xxx
    1 bound to Domain/DHCP/DNS Server 192.168.0.xxx
    1 bound to the physical network ( no connected to any vms) 192.168.0.xxx

    When I attempt to access the host machine via the unbound network interface I can't access anything. I have turned off its vmware bridge as I don't want it being available to the vm's. Not sure if this is a vmware problem or if this is a Windows Server 2003 problem...

    Thoughts.... Suggestions....

    Re: VMWare Network Trouble.

    I want to make sure I understand your configuration. You have a host with 3 physical network cards, presumably all configured for the same subnet and all 3 wired to a network switch? And 1 of the 3 physical NICs is unreachable on the physical network?

    Is the Windows firewall on by chance?
    Which VMware product are you using?

      Yes all 3 physical network cards and wired to a switch... When i attempt to ping the ip address of them that I have assigned to them on the host OS they don't respond.. However I can ping the vm's no problems. Just not the physical.

      Is the Windows firewall on by chance?

      No. Smoothwall www.smoothwall.org


      Which VMware product are you using?
      VMWare Server GSX (not ESX)

        Re: VMWare Network Trouble.

        VMware Server and VMware GSX are two different products.

        GSX was retired quite a long time ago and you should not be using it.

        VMware Server is the current offering of VMware's hosted server platform. It replaced GSX and is free to boot. I suggest using the most current version of VMware Server which I believe is 1.0.5.

          This sounds like a firewall issue on your nic.

              Sorry for the lack of clarity. I would like to be clear that I am using currently using the most current version of VMWare Server. What makes you think it is a firewall issue.
