Hi everyone, I’m having some trouble getting my host and all my VMs to talk to each other. I think my problem resides somewhere in the Virtual Network Editor.
Here’s my problem. I have 5 virtual machines and 2 LAN segments (we’ll call them A and B). 1 virtual machine has pfSense on it with access to LAN segments A and B (each of which have 2 machines). Through DHCP, it gives segment A IP’s 172.16.11.33/27 – 172.16.11.50/27. pfSense gives segment B IP’s 172.16.11.65/27 – 172.16.11.80/27. Now this all works like it’s supposed to, for example, the 2 virtual machines in segment A can talk to each other and the router, but can’t talk to segment B and vice versa.
The problem is that I can’t ping ANY virtual machine in segments A or B from the host machine. The host machine does not need access to the internet (neither do the VMs), so I’m trying to figure out how to set up the Virtual Network Adapter so I can talk to my virtual machines. I’ve tried setting my virtual network to NAT, Bridged, and Host-Only, but none of them seem to work.
Does anybody know how I am supposed to set up my virtual network to allow me to ping VMs from the host machine and vice versa? I can change the IP addresses of the VMs if it helps, but I need to stay as a class B ip address preferably on 255.255.255.224.
Any information would be appreciated.
