i have got a vmware server 2 on centos 5.6 host. I can access my virtual machines from host machine, but i can not access from other machines.

I have configured nat port forwarding. But somehow i have no access to vm using ssh. I have checked all firewall settings and seems right.

What can cause this problem?

best regards, bilal

sorry thanks for responses – bilal Jul 8 '11 at 16:43

It is usually easier to configure a bridge between the virtual interfaces and your host-interface. That way all your VMs will appear as real hosts on your network. Make sure you don't have "host-only" networking enabled.

For reference: Vmware: bridged network
