    Create a VM and in the OS set an IP that is different from the other VMs and hosts. Done.

    I hope that is what you're asking. If not, please provide a more detailed question so we can understand better.

    Come say HI! :)
  • question 1. Is this on a local network or you bought a dedicated server?
    2. does your dedicated server come with multiple IP's or are you trying to get a NAT configured

    answer 1: dedicated server
    answer 2: i bought from dacentec come with 1IP, can you guide me use NAT configured ?

  • while you can NAT with 1ip... I really recommend you get at least 2 IPS... one for the ESXi install and the other for your firewall (pfsense/sophos/zentyal/clearos etc)

    You have 2 options if you only have a single IP available:

    1) Buy a 2nd IP, install a software router (I use ClearOS for my ESXi installs but Vyatta or any other should be fine), add the 2nd IP to the software router and point all of your VMs to the software router for NAT.

    2) Install a software router (like mentioned above), add your single IP to the software router, change your IP on your ESXi host to a NAT'ed IP (or use DHCP) and point it to your software router to manage internally and point all of your VMs to the software router for NAT. (You'll want to request KVM over IP access to your server from Dacentec since you'll lose connection to your ESXi host when you assign the IP to your software router.)

    You can't run NAT on ESXi with only one IP - You need another IP for a VM that does the NAT.

    No you can't unless you don't want access to the host anymore or play around with ugly hacks (multiple bridges and NAT IP on the host, very bad if the VM does not autostart at one point).

    You can, you just need to run a software router and you'll need to NAT your ESXi host. I've done this in the past with a Delimiter server that only had one IP.

    Its less a hack and more of some careful planning to get it working.. of course I really don't recommend it but on cases where you have ilo or DRAC you don't necessarily need to keep the server on its own ip.. in fact its probably safer if its not.

    I think this is good choice, so summary, now i have 1 IP, and i will install pfsense and next step, how i can seperate more IP by pfsense. Thank you !

  • I got esxi to work with 1 ip nat using an online.net server.
