I have a 1&1 hosting dedicated server (Linux Centos 5.x with Plesk) (
IP 74.208.98.x) and I configured a NagiosXI virtual machine to run in NAT mode under VMware player 4.0. because I was unable to use bridge mode (where the 1&1's security system sees MAC spoofing from virtual machine and terminates my server/send it offline). The only possibility I can use is the NAT mode.
I want to know how I can communicate with the nagiosXI VM from the internet. It would be better if I were able to map the NagiosXI internal IP into one of my subdomains. I do have a fixed static IP that I am thinking of using if possible so that the NagiosXI VM wont rely on DHCP.
