I have a windows 2008 web server machine running VMware server. I have 3 VM's - All 3 are test servers so security isn't really a concern... each of them running windows 2008 standard and some of them serving web content.
My ISP only allows one MAC address to access the physical switch, however they give me 10 public IP addresses to use. My question is, if I put each VM on their own Host only network, how can I route all traffic from a specific public IP on the host, to the corresponding host only adapter, therefore routing to the specific VM?
A single physical Adapter on the Host has the following public IP's assigned to it in windows networking:
Each VM is on a host-only network
- vm1 - 192.168.196.1
- vm2 - 192.168.197.1
- vm3 - 192.168.198.1
On the host, I want to route all traffic from 126.96.36.199 to VM1 and 188.8.131.52 to VM2 and 184.108.40.206 to vm3 without using VMware NAT, or bridged connections. I want each server to appear to have its own public IP address. My guess is i can modify the route tables somehow, or perhaps in ICS...but i'm not sure how.
