I have a tiny problem, I guess it’s just something that I’m overlooking but I cannot seem to find the solution.
My laptop runs on linux but from time to time I need to use some Windows-tools. So to make it easy, I run a Windows-VM inside VMWare Workstaiton Player (the free version), which works pretty good.
The network-configuration is
so the VM has it’s own IP-address.
In the WUI of IPFire everything regarding the VM is shown correctly, the IP-adress is correct, the MAC-adress is correct, that it’s in the BLUE-network is correct (because the laptop itself is connected via WLAN), etc. I also activated AccessOnBlue for the VM.
But whatever I configure, IPFire blocks the traffic coming from the VM, more precisely it blocks the DNS requests the VM is sending to the IPFire-address on BLUE (because it’s the DNS-Server). IPFire also blocks the packets from the VM to the broadcast (in the same network). I even tried to change the DNS for the VM (changed from 192.168.2.1/IPFire to 192.168.0.1/FritzBox) but then IPFire blocks the forwarding.
I tried applying rules for the whole BLUE-network and for just the IP-address of the VM, I even changed the standard-configuration of the firewall, so that IPFire does not block forwarding pakets, but still everything from the VM is blocked.
Does anyone know why?
