Im trying to set up a test webserver with VMware Player and the webserver is unaccessible from the host, and from any other computer. Here is the info.
Host: Windows 7 laptop using Vmware Player
Guest: CentOS with Apacher
LAN: Bridged/Wired and connected directly to a router
Both the host and guest have a public IP each, I can browse the internet from each of them, I can ping the guest from the host or any other computer BUT i can't access the webserver in any other than the Guest. I need that guest machine to be publicly available online. I've been checking every possible setting but I still get Error 504 when i try to browse to the Guest server
Thanks in advance,
1. Is there a proxy server that your web browsers go through?
2. Are the public ip addresses being assigned via dhcp to both the host machine and the centos guest?
3. Have you tried accessing the site from a machine outside of your network?
4. When you access the website from the centos guest are you using it's public IP address or a loopback address?
