dmz with vmware question

hi there

i have an esx server with everything working fine. im trying to setup a dmz but its not working for me.

i have created new vswitch with 2 nics - portgroup has vlan 100. nics are connected to cisco 3560 switch and the two esx ports are setup for trunking vlan 100 and trunk mode etc. i then have port 3 on the cisco swtich connected to the dmz port on the firewall - i have configured the switch port as an access port on vlan 100.  my vm can ping the firewall and the firewall can ping the vm but i cant access the internet from the vm.

i have tried all the usuals like windows firewall etc so its nothing simple here.

i believe my problem lies in the firewall as esx other vlans are all ok

maybe silly, but can you try and ping ip adresses? like try pinging 4.2.2.1 from the vm? Need to understnad if issue lies only not being able to access anything beyond the firewall, or is it name resolutions?

Secondly, do yo uhave rules defined to alow outbound from dmz? and ensure its higher up in the list?

that times out also. its not name resolution.

It's correct, is a standard switch there isn't any particular configuration to do, try to check L3 rules on firewall side.
Here there's some implementation scenario
