Blocked inbound packets with VMWare Fusion and Windows XP guest Machine
Posted on 2010-09-15
I am developing a windows based server application and use VMWare Fusion. My virtual NiC is connected to my iMAC's ethernet port. I have turned the firewall off on both the iMAC and Windows XP machines. I have installed wireshark on both the MAC and Windows XP machine. When I run my application the server app sets up fine on the windows XP machine. When an inbound request comes in I can see the traffic on the iMAC via wireshark and the packets have the correct dest ip and port. The traffic is supposed to go to the windows XP machine but its not arriving. I open up wireshark on the xp machine and the traffic is not present. I am pulling my hair out. Please help!!!!
Running OSx 10.6.4 and VMWare fusion 3.1.0
