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