I have recently setup ESXi 6 and used a P2V convertor to create my virtual machines on my Host server.
So in my simple mind I kept everything the same - being the server structure and internal IP address.
My Host running esxi is internal address 192.168.0.12 and my physical server had an ip address of 192.168.0.11.
After converting I switched my physical box off and run my VM all good!!!
NOW - ALL of my port forwarding rules DO NOT WORK!
I see that my VM has the same internal address as my old physical box and port 80 as well as port 22 fail to work.
So I don't get what is missing!? Surely the VM has the same internal address and the port 80 traffic should be sent there!>??? But NO!
Internally everything is just fine!
It seems as though the Host ip (192.168.0.12) doesn't bridge or connect the virtual machine (192.168.0.11) for port forwarding.
YES I have done the obvious..delete the PF rukes and recreate as well as flush the MAC address tables etc.
Any advice would be great guys 🙂
can you please explain your problem in short .
