I have VM Fusion on a MAC side and I install windows on VM Fusion,look like averything work fine with NAT turn on, but my Altiris 6.5 console don't work, and I know this relate to VM
altiris console using port 1433 to connect to server. I have try bridge also won't work? any suggestion will help
Have you configured the Windows Firewall to allow communication on that port?
If you're using NAT you may have to allow port forwarding on that port...
With the Virtual Machine shutdown, not suspended and Fusion closed...
In a Terminal (/Applications/Utilities/Terminal) copy and paste the following commands to edit the nat.conf to allow port forwarding.
sudo "/Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/boot.sh" --stop
Make the appropriate edit in the [d-12503] section of the nat.conf file.
Now edit the nat.conf file...
sudo nano "/Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/vmnet8/nat.conf"
Then start the VMware Virtual Network using the following command...
sudo "/Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/boot.sh" --start
Now open Fusion and start the Virtual Machine and make sure the XP Firewall allows communication on that port as well.
by default VM fusion allow all incoming and outgoing ?
If it did then wouldn't that just defeat part of why some Networks are NATed!?
if not under which part in this file I insert the statement? is that allow 1433?
Reread my previous reply as I have already stated where.
BTW I'm not sating you have to edit the nat.conf to make whatever your trying to do work as I have not used the product you're having a problem with and the fact that you can't get it to work while bridged leads me to believe you do not have something configured properly however when I've kept a VM NATed and hosting a given service and wanted to access it from a different Subnet I had to enable port forwarding in the nat.conf and it worked. I'd first look to see why you cannot get it to work under Bridged because if you can't get it working under Bridged, assuming Bridged is a viable choice in your overall network configuration, you have bigger problems then doing port forwarding under NAT.
I'm not clear on reading the responses, but did you say it worked when you had the network bridged instead of NAT?
First of all you're replying to my reply not the OP's and secondly...
No the OP said "I have try bridge also won't work?"
Granted it leaves little to be desired grammatically but I take to say... I have also tried bridged and it will not work.
And if that is true then I really do not see this as a Fusion issue per se but a Software Configuration Issue in that the User is not properly configuring the software he is trying to use.
