not able to access the URL on Linux from the host OS(WIN7)


Hi All,

I don't have much knowledge on VMWARE, was using oracle virtual machine previously and now switched to VMWARE and had a problem with accessing app URL from my HOST OS (Win 7).
The application server is hosted on RHEL 5 running under VMWARE.
> I can access the application from a slave Linux server.
> I can ping the IP(192.168.31.128) of the Linux server from the HOST OS and vice versa.
> The VMWARE is using VMNET8(192.168.31.1) as a NAT interface for VMWARE and underlying OS.
>I am not bale to remote login to my LINUX Machine from WIN7 although I can use putty to ssh to it. ( I know in this particular case I am leaving something in configs under LINUX that I should not.. you guys probably suggest what it is? )

what I think could be a problem is I am using USB stick to connect and not a LAN chord, the IP assigned by USB STICK is using DHCP thru ISP and is falling on a different network then what LINUX under VMWARE is using and when I make a new network connection on my WIN 7 with the same network settings as I have on LINUX, it says "Network cable Unplugged" (most probably because I am not connected on wired network).


Is there any thing by chance I can make it work.

This is probably has to do with the application, since you were able to ssh to it. Are you able to telnet (connect) to the port where your application listen to?

I see. From my understanding, you are trying to connect to the GUI of the Linux box. Is this correct? If so, you need to install something like RealVNC on the Linux box. This is something like another server which you will be connecting to from your Windows machine. You also need to setup (open) the ports on your Linux machine,I think installation of VNC will do this for you, but if it doesn't, you need to manually setup the ports.

Hope this helps!

Not sure what VNC server software you have installed, but the default port is 5900 (can also be 5800). To verify this, telnet to the 192.168.31.128:5900 (or 192.168.31.128:5800) from your Windows machine to see if that was the port. Then try connecting using remote desktop.

I hope this helps!
