My school  has a public network ( example 1.1.1.0/24) and private networks 172.16.99.0/24.and 172.16.112.0/24  The AD, DNS, Lab Manager , Vcentre,  and Vsphere esxi4.01 machines are al on the private networks, . Anyone on the private networks can access lab manager no problem and open their VMs using the pop out console.  All routers in the private networks are using RIP v2.

No user on the public network can  access the lab manage using the web browser (firefox or IE). Our IT dept will not allow dynamic routing between the private and public.

I have tried quite a few things. Currenlty I have a dual homed Windows Server 2003 64bit  with RRAS enabled. I have set 2 static NAT mapping between 1.1.1.132 ---> 172.16.99.132  1) http port 80 and 2) https port 443.

When I try and use a web browser to http://1.1.1.132, it connects and just sits there, nothing on the screen and eventually times out. Can ping to the public address.

ANy ideas?. Really want to use the Lab manager on the public network. Help!!!! Lab Manager network
