I've built a small test lab using Client Hyper-V on my Windows 10 machine at home. It is in its infancy at the moment, as I am learning as I go. See attached diagram for an overview
I have set up a server and a client and given them both static IP addresses. I want to keep the servers away from the clients so I have set up a VyOS software router inbetween my two virtual switches. As far as I can tell I have set the router up correctly and i can ping the nearside interfaces from the server machine and also the client machine. However, when I try to ping the client machine from the server I get a Request Timed Out message.
I have disabled the firewall on both VMs and still get the same RTO message. I don't believe the firewall is set on the VyOS by default but I may be wrong ?
So what could be blocking the ping request getting back, if I am right the RTO means the ping request is reaching its destination but for some reason not getting back to the sender ??
I have not installed anything else such as AD DS, DHCP, DNS, anti-virus etc on either the server or the client as yet.
As I say I may be overlooking something fuundamental at this stage but I'm only just getting started with this and wanted to get it right.
