Connecting to win7 VPN from a win7 vmware machine error 720,619,800

So ive set up incoming connections to my win7 ultimate personal computer.
I've configured the 1723 port on my router as well so connections can be allowed.

I've added a user and password for the vmware machine to connect its running win7 x86 home premium.

When im trying to connect to my personal computer from the virtual machine ill get the errors listed in the title depending on the network selected for the vmware machine being NAT/Bridged ect , as Ive played around with them to see if it will work.

Hi there
You need to ensure your VPN INCOMING goes direct to your VM -- you have to treat the VM EXACTLY as if it's a REAL PHYSICAL machine.

I'm not sure whether NAT or Bridged networking should be employed with your VM --trial and error might be the best.

It's the same for example say you were at work or at a remote location and you wanted to use RDP to your Virtual machine -- you would need to set up the router to pass the ports to the IP address of the VIRTUAL machine (not the REAL machine)

If all you need to do is to share files with the HOST then normal networking will work.
You won't be able to "log on" to the same physical machine (Host) from a VM on the same Host.

All you need the HOST machine for (using VMware workstation) is to ensure that the VM is up and running.

It's even better with VMWARE WORKSTATION 8 -- you don't even need to be logged on to the HOST W7 machine at all -- the program can act as a server so you can log on to the VM without even needing a user id on the HOST !!

Note however that accessing another machine (Real or Virtual) via things like RDP when the Virtual Machine is on the same Physical machine will cause problems.

What you can do is to access the VM via a DIFFERENT machine (say another LAPTOP) then it should all work.

Remember to set the appropriate pass through rules in your firewall and router port forwarding.

thanks for the reply, i have vmware 8 but havent really used it for anything other then test machines and using it for a virtual server.

I have a laptop with vista so i might try that out. Could i connect to the virtual machines from another location? such as work

Hi there
Absolutely -- note however to connect to your VM from work VMSERVER is the RIGHT application for this too.

1) Port 3309 (I think) needs to be open from your workplace
2) enable RDP on your VM
3) enable your Router to transfer the Port (3309) to your IP address of the vm.
4) The VM needs to be up and running.

It's a bit fiddly if you want to connect to different VM's with different IP addresses as you'll need to do some registry fixes to change the default ports.

If port 3309 is closed at your workplace use Putty and Tunnelling -- how to do this is beyond the scope of this post but a bit of Googling will get the answer for you.

In fact I ONLY ever remotely connect to VM's -- I don't like the idea of people being able to possibly connect to my main computer. If a VM gets problems I just wipe it and start another one.

If you are running a Server / Web application -- these can easily be done from a VM too and accessed remotely (APACHE, PHP and LINUX or Windows -- known as LAMP or WAMP servers).

BTW to get round the problem of dynamic IP addresses behind your HOME router use something like NO-IP.
No-IP - Dynamic DNS, Static DNS for Your Dynamic IP

thanks heaps for the info,

The work itself has a dynamic IP as far as i know, Theres an employee that wants to connect to it to access the LAN(she lives about 5 hours away) as ive set up some mapped drives so the small network of computers can access the same files.

Im not to sure if remote desktop or vpn would be better for her, shes running vista home premium and doesnt have dsl, she has a usb dongle.

I've used the portforward program for assigning a static IP for a dynamic computer although i havent tested it much to see if its any good
