HOWTO port-forward services running in VM

How to port forward the services running in your VM?

  1. Forward the ports: either choose “Bridged connection”, or “NAT” and add specific ports you want to forward
  2. If you use VMPlayer and somehow cannot get to the network editor (in Windows), run this (as administrator):
    $ rundll32.exe vmnetui.dll VMNetUI_ShowStandalone
  3. Make sure the firewall on both the guest OS and the host OS allow the traffic/access you are forwarding.
  4. Access the service through the host OS’ IP address
