I've a webserver in my vmware guest os suse 12.2 running but how can I connect it from my host os? My virtual machine is configured with NAT option in vmware network manager but I can't ping my vm from my host os? I've tried this tutorial to no avail: http://www.nwlab.net/tutorials/VMware/. I add port forwarding to my vm from port 80 to port 80. It's using vmnet8 and my adapter has a different ip then my guest? Is this normal behaviour? This is the same question but I can't get it work: How can I connect to a web server running in a VM when the VM is in NAT mode??
Edit: Hmm, it works. I've installed vmware-tools and after a reboot of the host it works? I've also enabled port-forwarding. I typed ifconfig in guest os and I used this ip in host os to load the webserver.
