I am having issues accessing a web page that is hosted within a VM on my internal network.
This is the scernario:
Broadband setup with external DNS name
Rule on the broadband router to direct all HTTP requests on port 80 to 192.168.0.100 allowing any
Physical machine running windows 7 64Bit and Comodo CIS
Physical machine IP address 192.168.0.8
VMware player running on the physical machine and running a Suse Linux image with the ip address of 192.168.0.100
VMware player setup within Comodo CIS as trusted application
When I access 192.168.0.100 internally all is fine and I can access the page.
When I hit the external website URL from a machine on my internal network I can access the page.
However, when an external user hits the URL they get a message saying that the “requested URL could not be retrieved”.
If i disable the Comodo firewall and reload the page I get the message of Error 404.
I know that external access works to the machine as I have an FTP server on the physical machine using the same external URL and pointing to 192.168.0.8.
I believe that there is something blocking access to the VM within Comodo but is only applicable to external, however Comodo does let FTP through.
I have also setup a rule within CIS to allow any source address through to 192.168.0.100 on port 80 but this still does not work.
