To access a virtual machine from outside, you either need to configure the VM's virtual network as "Bridged", or use "NAT" with port forwarding. Which option fits best depends on your requirements, i.e. the number of ports that need to be accessed.

Hi André

I am using my server vm as "Bridged", but can you tell me how can I achieve the following? I am unable to figure out how to access my server vmware machine from outside.

Can you explain me what are the things I have to do to achieve what I need.?

If your VM is set to Bridged and it has Internet/Network Connectivity then this is not a VMware issue per se and accessing the VM remotely is no different then accessing a Physical Machine on a Remote Network.  You'll probably have to configure your Router to allow access from the WAN side to get to the VM, either allowing Port Forwarding to the VM's IP Address or putting it in the DMZ.  Consult the documentation for you router or you could use software like Team Viewer.

I'd suggest you Google something like: how to access my computer remotely

Hi WoodyZ


Apologize for the late reply. I read the article suggested by you but I think my router is not capable to set Dynamic DNS (DynDNS or DDNS) service. Is there anyother method to achieve this?
