Want to setup my own Vmware Server with Public Static IP with few Virtual machines


Hi,

- I want to setup a machine with Vmware Server with Public Static IP so that it can be accessed via any bowser from anywhere.
- I asked my Internet service provider about buying new static IP which is around $ 20 per year.
- he said that I donít need to buy one as when I login the same IP will remain static unless I log off.
- but I want to access my Vmware server with several vms running on it online from anywhere in world.
- I want to know as in most office the Facebook.com and Youtube.com are blocked so can my newly assigned IP be accessed from my office which will be assigned to to vmware server?

If you have some other suggestion please advise me.

One thing I know that I will have to do some "port forwarding"

Cheers,

manali

You really should get an assigned static IP from your ISP, what they've told you about the IP remaining static unless you log off may be true, but what if there's a power cut? If you then reconnect you may get a different IP address.
As for whether or not your newly assigned IP is accessible from your office, NOBODY HERE KNOWS. It's up to your office to decide what IPs or URLs are blocked. If your ISP is a known source of spam then their entire IP address range may be banned, only your office network administrator can tell you for sure.
Regarding port forwarding, yes, you'll likely have to port forward from your router to the internal IP addresses of your VMs.

Set up as many virtual machines as you'd like. And you obviously don't have a static IP address now, since your ISP told you it will change, next time you reboot/log off. What's going to happen then?

Again, as you've been asked MANY times in the past, you need to ask a clear question, and provide details. You say you want to "access" your server...access HOW??? SSH? FTP? Telnet? Web?? What???

Also, if your office has blocked youtube and other sites, you're asking how to circumvent your network security policies. Do what you want, but you WILL be caught, and you WILL be fired for doing such things.

We will advise you, as we have many times in the past, to show some effort of your own. There is AMPLE documentation on how to set up a Vmware server with many guests. And since you don't say what your ultimate goal is, we can't tell you what you need to do, so again, ask a clear question.

And how do you 'know' this? What port(s)? Forwarded to where? For what purpose???

Check to see if you ISP will allow you to do it. WOW! is my ISP, I can't run a server on their pipe without them disconnecting my connection till its off. In order to run a server, you must buy a business pipe. You will need to get static IP addresses for each machine to access them. If you goal is just accessing your data online, get dropbox or onedrive instead.

Along with what the others have said, your only getting one IP from your ISP so you will only be able to have a single server on the public IP, so keep that in mind. If you opt for a business IP range for multiple IP addresses be very careful about that. I tried once and only after the contract was signed I find that the actual technicians in my area were not yet trained in how to install the needed hardware for an IP range instead of a single IP. However for a single IP on a home connection, I might add you can try using a dynamic DNS service. These were designed to track your IP address and change the DNS automatically. Definitely not for anything serious such as a hosting company, but is somewhat manageable for a single home user if you can put up with the outages when the DNS needs to update.
