Windows – With VMware Workstation, how can I SSH from the host to a guest with NAT

nat;sshubuntu 12.04vmware-workstationwindows 7

My host is Windows 7 with VMware Workstation 10. I am running an Ubuntu 12.04 guest that is connected to an NAT network. How can I set up the network so that I can SSH from the host to the guest? I assume it has to do with port forwarding?

Best Answer

  • VMware Workstation creates virtual interfaces on the host. One for the host-only network and one for the NAT network.

    (This is one point where VirtualBox is different)

    So you only need to determine the IP-address of the guest.
