IP's, Ports & Remote Connections - Wits end, please help
Posted on 2011-10-04
I am currently in the middle of trying to set up a VPS for friends to log into from their home PC's
They will be using software that i will have pre installed.
I have a server (HP Proliant DL385 VT+/8GB Ram etc...)
I have ESXi 5 installed on the server
VMWare Sphere on my main PC
I have created 1 VM on the server with Win XP installed.
I can connect to the VM from inside my network, but that is useless as i need the VM to be accessible from the internet (my friends PC's)
I know little to nothing about IP address's , Ports, Default Gateways, NAT's, WLans etc...
Andy this is what is really pickling my head, i need someone to tell me im being stupid and all i need to do is ............
I have even tried to use team viewer to view the VM, but that couldnt connect either
I am here at the "Experts Exchange" pleading as a complete newbie .... help ....
I have been trying to make it possible for outside users to connect to the VM for over a week now, and to be honest i am completely at my wits end with it, ....
to the point that i am willing to pay someone to log into MY pc just to configure whatever the hell needs to be configured.
If someone could point me in the right direction by way of "Detailed" tutorial, or video or indeed anything.
P.S. If anyone thinks i should be using other Hypervisors or OS on the server please leave a note also
P.P.S. Sorry if this is in the wrong categories, like i said, ... NEWBIE
