I am having some trouble figuring this all out. I have

Windows 7 

[eth0= eth1=] 


I can ping eth0 and eth1 from Win7, and also I can ping Win7 from the two router interfaces too. My Win7 box traceroutes from to I can access the internet on Win7 and the Ubuntu box, so that's all correct

BUT! Ubuntu can't connect to the Win7 machine.

When I traceroute to the Win7 box, a packet gets to but goes no further. I have no idea where/what is.

so somewhere and eth0/eth1 are not forwarding packets between each other. I'm really struggling here!

I am on VMware Fusion.

My route -n for the router VM is:

Destination Gateway     Genmask       Flags Metric Ref Use Iface       UG 0 0 0             eth0 U                    eth1 U 1 0 0              eth0

If anyone can help, that'll be great.

Anyone have an idea? Thanks – Mehcs85 Aug 28 '12 at 9:00
What's the routing table on the Ubuntu machine? As for "I have no idea where/what is" - it's your default gateway on the router, probably your internet router or similar. – Gabe May 2 '13 at 17:16
