Hi all,

Please advice, I have cable coming out from my physical router which has public IP and all communication allowed by my ISP.

I connected this cable to physical NIC in vSphere host. I created standard vSwitch and created from that NIC its upload link.

I created 4 samples VMs.

My question - if one of those sample VM is for example SMTP server, what should I do so that connection on port 25 from internet goes only to VM with SMTP server?

Many thanks for your advice

V.

on your router, you would need to specify the IP Address of the VM, and Port Forward Port of 25.

It's not really anything to do with VMware's configuration, it's based on IP Address.

and configure the firewall on the vm to allow port 25
