are running a dedicated instance with VMWare. We want to create one (or more) VMs that will have a public and a private connection. We want the private connection to have access to all the other instances on VLAN 1766. The public connection should have a public IP. The hypervisor will only have a private network connection
- We tried to order a block of private portable IPs routed as 'Secondary on VLAN'. We received the IPs - but they were not on the same subnet (they are on the same VLAN). When we ping'ed the VM on the private network, we got a timeout.
- We assumed it was a problem because of the separate subnets. So to verify it, we reconfigured the VM, using one of the IPs on our current subnet that is 'Reserved for future use'. That worked.
- We tried changing the portal IPs to 'routed to VLAN'. But, the same problem occurred.
So, we're not sure what the right set up is supposed to be.
