Running VMware player with Cent OS. Running a server in the virtual os and trying to connect to it from the host pc to no avail. I have tried bridged, NAT, and host-only type network connections. I am able to ping my virtual machine when in NAT mode but cannot connect to the server (which hosts on UDP ports ~11000)
Try going to the virtual machine and disabling iptables with sudo service iptables stop . Then try to connect. If it works, the firewall was blocking you.
