  • cannot browse internet when on Natted virtual network

    Hello,
    I cannot find out the problem with browsing internet from VMs (2003 or XP) that are on Natted virtual network on VM Workstation 6.5.
    NSLOOKUP is fine. Also I can ping cnn.com and etc
    When switch the network to bridged everything is fine I can browse withou problem.
    In nat port forwarding I tried to add port 80.
    Did not think much if port forwarding is the right option in this case.

    Breafly, I need to resolve this.
    May be somebody knows the trick.

    Thx.
    Michael.

    Sorry... I lied

    Actually, I cannot ping cnn.com...
    I can resolve the name cnn.com
    it is not pingabale. But Yahoo.com is OK I can ping by name.
    But cannot browse...

      Many major sites will deny inbound icmp traffic by default at their upstream routers.

      change your network to ' natted' mode, then try and ping www.google.com for me


      Can you ping www.google.com from the VMware workstation physical host ?

      are you in a corporate environment, or a home environment ?
      What sort of host is your vmware srever running on ?

        pls see my initial post...

        I mentioned that I don't have any problem on bridged network.
        So definitely there is no problem on "host" itself.
        Don't see any relation between corporate or home env. in this case.

        1. Comp running Windows7 Core 2 duo 8GB

        2. In WMWorkstation: ESX 3.5 - 6 vms on bridged network - no problems.

        3. Directly on VM workstation -up to 8 vms (2008, 2003, xp) all network cards are on bridged network.

        4. when switch network on any net card of any vm to natted with static address of related subnet - cannot browse internet.
        NSLOOKUP gives 100% resolution.
        Can ping pingable sites: ex. yahoo.com is pingable cnn.com not.
        But cnn.com is resolved without problem.

        Hope answere your questions.

            Re: cannot browse internet when on Natted virtual network

            and hyper-v too

            In VMWorkstation I have virtual machines.
            Among them: server 2003, 2008, ESX 3.5 and Hyper-V.
            Do you need a screenshot ?

            Forget about ESX 3.5...
            Concentrate on Natted virtual network for XP or 2003 running on VMWorkstation.

            Again, the problem :

            when vm is on natted network internet browsing impossible when ping of the site by domain name works.

            There is no problem when switch the network type to bridged...

            Thx.

                Maish,
                I found the thread on VMWare forum about this issue.

                http://communities.vmware.com/thread...art=0&tstart=0

                It is confirmed by many that NAT is broken in both VMWare WS and Server running on Windows7.
                People are really not very happy because a lot of people actually using natted networks inside of WS.
                There is some workaround... but no straigh normal way.

                Thanks for trying to help.
                Michael.
