I have 2 physical machines, with 2 VM on the first physical.
I have been trying to connect 2 physical machines via RJ45 and give internet to the "lan" via NATting RNDIS on one VM (gateway) and routing it to LAN.



Now, when I'm trying to access Internet on the Physical 1, the Ethernet takes over RNDIS and then is looping :
Ethernet takes over nat > VM (gateway) > NAT > Ethernet takes over nat...
Is there a way to force RNDIS on host Physical 1 ?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

  • What about simply buying a switch ? Show your routes and IPs in use. – Xavier Lucas Feb 20 '15 at 12:40
  • Buying s switch won't solve the problem. I use USB to access Internet, can't switch USB unfortunatly... – JeanneD4RK Feb 20 '15 at 14:19
  • Then unless you decide to use reasonable network management practices (by changing the connectivity type), this question is out of topic and should be moved to superuser. – Xavier Lucas Feb 20 '15 at 15:13
  • This is kind of an esoteric setup... I would probably troubleshoot it by creating a diagram and listing all info (IPs, connections, linkages), then verifying the existing configuration in all systems against that diagram. It sounds to me like you have incorrect route defined. – jlehtinen Feb 20 '15 at 15:37
