    Slow port forwarding through NAT

    CreepingD Lurker

      Hi there

       

      As a starting vmWare Server (1.0.5) user I've set up the following:

       

      Host: Win XP Pro SP3

      Guest: Win XP Pro SP3 with abyss web server

       

      The guest has 2 network cards:

       

      NAT

      Bridged

       

      I wanted to use the guest as a webserver so I forwarded port 80 to the guest os, but... this is working really slow.

       

      Why do I want it this way? I want to run multiple guests, but IP addresses cost money...

       

      test:

       

      http://85.17.134.98/10mb.bin (NAT - the guest accessed through the forwarded port on the host) SLOW (I get arround 15KBps)

      http://85.17.134.99/10mb.bin (Bridged - the guest accessed directly) FAST (I get arround 1MBps)

       

      Any idea what's wrong here?

       

       

       

       

      thx
