If anyone has worked with VMware on linux, plase help me...
I have a server that has a primary IP as: 209.xxx.xxx.myip
and in ifconfig it has: BCast: 209.xxx.xxx.255
and netmask 255.255.255.255
and some virtual IP's as eth0:1 eth0:2 ...
The IP's are on range 67.xxx.xxx.xyy-xzz
and in ifconfig it has: BCast: 67.xxx.xxx.(xzz+1)
and netmask 255.255.255.240
I used /dev/vmnet0 as NIC on the VMware machine settings
(Custom: Specific Virtual Network)
i suppose this is the right one for bridging with the real host's
NIC and allowing it to use the network ...
i did dropped the last ip from host server,
ifconfig eth0:15 down, and now the last ip,
67.xxx.xxx.xzz is free - unused ...
i created on VMware a virtual machine,
and installed in a VDS with CentOS 3.4
when i was on networking configuration,
Primary DNS: 209.xxx.xxx.myip
Secondary DNS: 67.xxx.???.??? (A public DNS provided by my Datacenter)
Now, i finished all installations, and try to
ping the ip ...
I tried to ssh to the VDS IP, (67.xxx.xxx.xzz),
from inside the host system, and it succeeded
I tried to ssh to this from home or generally
any external network, and it fails...
I tried from inside the VDS machine to ping
external IP's and domains, with no success ...
I tried pinging the host main IP with no success !!!
I tried ssh to main host's IP, no route to host ...
Anyone that knows how to make it work please tell me !!!
When i solve this problem, i'm gonna write a tutorial on how
to make your own VDS on a linux Dedicated box with VMware.
