Have an ASA 5505 v8 Everything is working fine so far except once I tried running a Virtual machine on a computer in the DMZ.
My setup is pretty straight forward, 3 vlans, Inside, outside and a DMZ. Only have the security bundle license. Since this is a test bed I have loosened up the security as much as I can find/think of but still here is the problem I have:
When a machine running a Host OS, tried many flavors of Linux, Windows XP, and Mac OS X 10.5, hosts a guest OS via VMware Player 2.04 (networking set to bridged) and is on the DMZ the guest OS can not get connected to anything off the DMZ on any protocol. The host OS works fine and can do everything that it is allowed to.
If I take this exact same setup and plug it into an old Linksys Router I have sitting around it works great, both host and Guest OS have perfect connectivity.
What is tripping me up is the logs are not showing me anything. If I ping from the Host OS to anything on the DMZ or the Internet I can see the traffic and it works fine. (Yes, I have allowed icmp DMZ->Internet) If I ping from the Guest OS to anything on the DMZ works great and I can see the traffic. If I try to ping anything on the internet I get nothing. Further if I try to access http/https or even DNS off the DMZ I get nothing. No connection, no log file entries. It just does not work.
My best guess is that something to do with the VMware Bridge setup (vmnet0) is tripping something on the ASA causing it to drop packets?
If so, anyone know how to make them allowed?
Anyone else have a Vitrual Machine running on their DMZ?
Thanks in advance for any and all help
My best guess is that something to do with the VMware Bridging
