I've got a VMWare server running the Turnkey Linux LAMP Stack.
I've been using this server for some development work and want to make it accessible to a colleague for some feedback.
As things stand, the VM uses the "NAT" network option - For some reason, using the "Bridged" option results in the TKL VM being unable to get any settings via DHCP and no network access if I set IP/Gateway/Etc... manually.
My router previously had a subnet mask of
255.255.255.0 and a gateway at
The IP Address of the VM is
This is obviously outside the normal subnet - So I've modified the subnet on the router to be
I've tried adding some port forwarding on the router so that
MyPublicDomain:81 forward to
192.168.199.128:80. For some reason, connecting to
MyPublicDomain:81 results in a
server not responding error message.
The VM host is a Windows XP SP3 machine. I had hoped that using the appropriate LAN IP would route the packets as appropriate but it seems I was incorrect.
Can someone please suggest how I can export Port 80 on the VM to the outside world? Using a different external port is perfectly acceptable (NB: Port 80 is already used by the XP host).
I'm a linux newbie so am unsure if the problem is the linux VM or the port forwarding/routing.
Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.
The subnet is maintained by a D-Link WRT54G Router.
