Running a testing server in a virtual machine.

7 posts in this topic

So i created a centos server with VMware on my local Pc and the exile server runs fine, but i cannot connect to it ingame neither by typing in the address manually nor over the lan function. It doesn't show up. 

The network connection settings in vmware are bridged, so i don't see the reason... maybe someone can point me in the right direction.

I think you would still need to open ports through firewall for a bridged connection.

You might have not much expierence with a bridged VM. Unlucky he was (mostly) not able to connect from VM_Host because the network is "bridged".
With open Ports he can recieve incoming connections from outside(not with DSL-lite) & Guest(VM) but never from Host to Guest.... (its a bit more tricky NAT config)

So i opened every needed port in the machine and in my router but still no success... i dont get it, i can connect to my virtual machine through ssh or simply ping it without a problem, but the server isn't showing up

Are you completly sure that the server is running fine?

Did you checked if it is possible to connect with rcon tools?

If you are running everything with bridged mode, it should be possible to connect to the server using the correct IP.

Check your router and see if your pc and the vm are using different IP's inside of your network.
