Have you considered using a VIrtual Router, also installed in VMware Workstation.

1.Router on a floppy (small footpint)
http://www.freesco.org/

2. monowall
http://m0n0.ch/wall/

3. vyatta
http://www.vyatta.com/solutions/virtual/optimizedvirtualmachines

All of the above can be used to create a router, on VMware Workstation, which can be used to route traffic from 10.10.2.xxx network to 192.168.2.xxx network

Although these are based on FreeBSD, they are menu driven to create your router. Just create a VM, with two NICs, and follow the Tutotrials.

You need a router to do the routing.

I installed m0n0wall and got it up and running. This is the screenshot of the interfaces on it. Now m0nowall is acting like a gateway for my VMNET02 (vmware workstaion network). Now how do I configure it.

VMNET02 : IP Range : 10.10.2.xxx
Local Internet: IP Range : 192.168.2.xxx

My vmware esx server has 2 nics, 1 on VMNET02 and other on bridged. (vmware networking image attached)

You need to have two network interfaces on MonoWall VM, connected to both vSwitch0 and vSwitch1.

and configure routing to route between the two networks

INTERNET <--> DMZ <---> LOCAL

1) I have 2 nics on monowall vm. 1st connected to VMNET02 (10.10.2.xxx) and 2nd connected to DMZ (192.168.2.xxx)


2) I created two static routes on monowall, below is the configuration

LAN
Network: 10.10.2.0
GW: 10.10.2.1

WAN
Network: 192.168.2.0
GW: 192.168.2.1

monowall's IP is 10.10.2.1


Now I am able to ping 192.168.2.1 and 192.168.2.5 (local systems IP) from my vm systems (10.10.2.xxx series). But not able to ping VM's from local systems

you will need to probably add static routes to your local systems, so they know the gateway to route to to reach 10.10.2.xxx

how do I do that...

My systems network details are as follows

IP: 192.168.2.5
SM: 255.255.255.0
GW: 192.168.2.1
DNS: 208.67.222.222
         208.67.220.220


And monowall's interface details I have attached the image in the previous post.

I used vyatta to configure, but did not found any configuration details here, so I had to do lots of research to get it done. At the end I was sucessful.
