Accessing a Citrix web interface from outside/internet using Windows NAT:

I have following setup:

1. One Xenserver hosting to VMs(2008 VMs). 1 VM acts as domain controller, citrix WI with site something like dc.citrix.com. 2nd VM has Citrix installated.

2. First VM IP is 10.0.0.11 and 2nd is 10.0.0.12 and gateway IP is 10.0.0.1

3. Now I have 2 more VMs in VM workstation with Bridged VM ethernet. One of the VM acting as NAT has following IP(Windows 2003):

1. 10.0.0.1  Internal network with RIP protocol.
2. 192.168.1.10 and default gateway is 192.168.1.1 (Outside)

Second VM (Windows XP acts as outside network with IP address 192.168.1.5.

Have following issues:

1. I can ping 192.168.1.10 from 10.0.0.11 but not 192.168.1.5
2. I want to connect to internal Citrix web interface from 192.168.1.5. How should I achieve this? How to connect to dc.citrix.com. On external NAT i have also allowed port 80 to be forwarded to private IP 10.0.0.11.

Please help!!

Hi
it seems you have problem with  RIP !

RIP protocol will only work when you have at lest 2 RIP running device in the network for exchange RIP routing table .

in your scenario  as explained i did not found any 2nd RIP router or server who responding exchange routing table information .

you able to ping 192.168.1.10 from 10.0.0.11 because its your NAT/Router server NIC ip , and NAt server do not know more about 192.168 network so you getting RTO.

i recommend you to disable RIP and just configure a static route on your NAT server
as fallowing .
i assume you have 2 NIC and configured as fallowing on your NAT server .
Local Area connection = 192.168.1.10
Local Area connection 1= 10.0.0.1

now open routing and remote access > go to IP routing > Right click on Static Routes, and click Add Static Route on the right click menu > 
choose Local Area connection in interface menu
Destination 10.0.0.0
Network mask 255.0.0.0
Gateway 10.0.0.1
and then press OK

now again do the same for 192.168.1.0 network
Right click on Static Routes, and click Add Static Route on the right click menu > 
choose Local Area connection 1 in interface menu
Destination 192.168.1.0
Network mask 255.255.255.0
Gateway 192.168.1.10
and then press OK


and now on 192.168.1.5 set 192.168.1.10 as Gateway
