Ok so this is my situation...
I am running a LAB VMware Workstation 7 on my laptop with the following config...
(1) Vyatta Virtual router with (3) interfaces
eth0= 10.10.5.5 - Bridged
eth1=10.10.4.5 - Bridged
eth2=10.10.3.5 - Bridged
(2) OpenFiler Virtual SANs with (2) interfaces each.
eth0= 10.10.5.10/24 - Bridged
eth1=10.10.4.10/24 - Bridged
eth0=10.10.4.11/24 - Bridged
eth1=10.10.5.11/24 - Bridged
10.10.4.0 > 10.10.3.5 Metric 1
10.10.5.0 > 10.10.3.5 Metric 1
Now this is my issue... While routing works... I am getting intermittent connectivity to the router and the nodes behind it.
I have tried updating the Vyatta router. I had RIP enabled, which is now disabled but i cant get my head around what the problem is.
At one point i had the filers on a private LAN but i want to be able to serve them out to real machines so that wont work for me.
Not being an expert in VMware Workstation, I am wondering what i could be doing wrong here.
ICMP is intermittently dropping packets from my workstation to the filer and router interfaces.
It is oddly algorithmic actually.
Now i don't know if setting all of my hosts to bridge mode is supported so it could be that i am completely screwing the pooch.. But theoretically it seems like it should work.
I have been having a tough time getting help here recently. Not sure if i am in the right place but i figured i would give it a shot.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
