I've done research on this but can't seem to find a solution. Set up:
iMAC with VM FUsion and Windows 7 Pro
iMAC hardwired to network with DHCP
Win 7 Pro VM bridged ethernet and static IP on network (DNS of server and ISP)
The problem seems to be two fold. The Win 7 cannot get to internet and i cannot RDP into 7 machine from outside the network.
I can RDP from the MAC and any PC on the network.
The firewall shows that the RDP traffic is allowed to the Win 7's IP address but the RDP client just times out.
I had read that bridged with static should be used and mac should be hardwired. I don't see why a static IP on the mac would make a difference but that is only thing not tried yet.
