Vmware Nat Not Working

Nov 29, 2021

Problem

I'm running Windows 10, and I want to set up my guests' network with VMware Workstation 15. I am using NAT. When guests on the guest network can access host services, they only need the fixed address of the service which does not depend on the network configuration outside of your computer - this is what NAT does.

Ethernet adapter Host-NAT:
    Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . : localdomain
    Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::ad5d:7c44:696a:7c01%15
    IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 10.0.0.101
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 10.0.0.1

* *SymptomsProblemThe guest cannot connect to the Internet. Pinging hosts on the Internet will give a timeout error.*

What worked for me was removing the firewall completely, rebooting my host, and then rebooting my guests. None of these steps fixed the issue by themselves - I needed to take all of them in order for it to work."

Solution

Disabling DHCP on the NAT Host on 10.0.0.1 (instead of 10.0.0.2) should solve the problem, but a workaround would be to configure a NAT rule in the NAT Host configuration utility to intercept traffic whenever it is addressed to IP address 10.0.0.
