I am currently creating a network inside a VMware ESXi host.
The network consists currently of two vSwitches and two port groups. Port Group A is associated with vSwitch0 and Port Group B with vSwitch1. I have a gateway (pfSense) which has a NIC two the Internet and one NIC in Port Group A.
I have a set of VMs each with one NIC in Port Group B. My plan is to have a VM running Linux to have two NICs, one in each Port Group, and have them bridged so the clients from Port Group B can talk to the Internet and i can monitor the network traffic on the Linux VM.
I created a bridge on the Linux machine but can neither ping my gateway from there nor can a VM in Port Group B ping the bridge/gateway.
What am I doing wrong or is there a more simple solution?
