Vmware Web Server

Nov 27, 2021

Problem

I have an Ubuntu virtual machine hosted on my Windows 7 PC. I want to show off the Rails site that my friends are technically outside of my network. The article proved me with a bit of concern though - it kept reminding me that guests will be visiting the VM's my Windows 7's IP address, which is not too good for anonymity. For more security, I followed this blog post and managed to map out some ports:

Host Port: 8200 Type: UDP Virtual IP Address: 192.168.198.184:3000 

* From what I understand, port 8200:8200 on my 'real' PC (192.168.1.1xx) should open and allow me to access the virtual webserver running on my VM (192.168.198.184). However, when I try this out, I get nothing- no connection at all on that port number on 192.168.198.184 (the IP of the VM), and it seems like there's some error preventing me from accessing the virtual network editor (which is only present in the vmware folder where it's installed). Could someone please help?

Solution

It seems like there's something wrong with the NAT mode. Maybe use bridged network instead?
