I have been messing with this for a good bit of time and my limited ability with ESX Server is showing.

In Workstation or Server this is easy but how do I configure my virtual machine running in ESX Server to connect to the network over a NAT-ed IP address. Basically I want my virtual machine to not touch the physical network but connect via the ESX Server's IP address and then in turn be able to port forward 443 to the virtual machine.

There is no such option make a NAT-ed network configuration on a ESX server.
BTW, port 443 is occupied by ESX itself.

That is what I though but wanted to check with someone else.

Yeah, the web interface runs there.

Thanks.
