Smoothwall web interface is not accessible from inside

Hi Experts,

I am seting up lab in home for security testing. I have windows7 64 bit ultimate is host operating system.
I have installed VMware workstation 10.0.3 (latest version) and creating virtual machine in it. I want to create typical company network consists of external, internal and DMZ network. In this configuration I have installed free version smoothwall firewall having 3 interfaces namely external,internal and dmz and will be connected to three switches.Firewall network configuration is set as green+orange+red with default configuration as half open and its switch and interface assignment is

VMnet2—eth0—Red  set by dhcp in virtual switch (got IP as 10.2.0.128)
VMnet3—eth1—Green  10.4.0.10 set as staic
VMnet4—eth2—Orange 10.3.0.10 set as static

In VM all network adapters are set as custom. When smoothwall boots and after login I get the three interfaces as

eth0—10.2.0.128
eth1—10.4.0.10
eth2—10.3.0.10

Now the issue is I want to configure smoothwall firewall and access its configuration. I setup another machine Windows XP in VMNET4 switch (got ip as 10.4.0.220 from dhcp in vmnet4) and want to access smoothwall web interface using https://10.4.0.10:441 but I am not getting this access. I even tried telnet 10.4.0.10 441 from XP
machine and it is not working.

Your help is highly appreciated to fix this.

Thanks in advance

As 10.4.0.10 is firewall internal interface (green interface) I am not sure ping is allowed or not. But sure on 10.4.0.10 on port 441 and on port 80 service is running so we should be able to connect from internal network machine to this.

if you bind ALL the interfaces to the BRIDGED Network, using the same IP Addresses, does this work?

But why to change to bridge network as it is custom configuration.

rjp55Author Commented:
Actually I found out the solution. it was misconfiguration in virtual switch

It should be
eth0—10.2.0.128  Red      VMNET2
eth1—10.3.0.10   Orange   VMNET3
eth2—10.4.0.10   Green    VMNET4

Order of card assignmnent is important while smoothwall installation and I set as red,orange and green now
Now I am able to access web interface of smoothwall.
