router - win machine - vmware workstation - solusvm - virtual machine


i have specific situation, which i belive is problem with VM node.
So situation is next:
I want to access from outside to my test virtual machine which i made with solusVM on virtual machine which is running on vmware workstation.
I made on router static routing to network 192.168.10.x (which is virtual network for virtual machines).
My virtual server (run on vmware) which running solusVM have internet access, but virtual machine from solusvm don`t.
I belive that is problem with some routing on virtual machine which is running on solusvm, because i can access to all machines and they have internet connection except the vm which started on solusvm.

I believe that is confusing what i wrote, but that is situation where i am stack.
So can anyone help me with this, how to resolve issue?

Hi -

Yes, your explanation *is* confusing

Please elaborate:
Q: Your "physical" host is the PC running VMWare workstation.
It's a Windows PC, correct?

Q: "solusVM" is a virtual machine manager GUI, correct?

Q: Your actual VM is running Linux, correct?

Q: Is your VMWare VM (the Linux VM?) configured to use bridged networking?
If not, why not?

Q: Can you "ping" both ways between your physical host and your VM when you run your Linux VM in VMWare Workstation (independent of solusVM)?

Q: Can you connect to internet sites from your Linux VM when you run it under VMWare Workstation (instead of solusVM)?

q4: good question i put on NAT, wait to check now.
q5: i cannot ping only from VM node.
q6: yes, i installed solusVM from internet.

i add VM IP address to bridge mode, and now access to that VM is very slow and still don`t have internet ..
p.s: and now i can ping from VM, node
