Hi

This is what I have done.

Installed Apache 2 triad on a VMWare virtual machine on my Desktop PC.

Desktop and Laptop are connected over wireless

I have Sunbelt Personal Firewall 4 installed on the desktop PC (no firewall on the VMWare machine)

When I have the firewall Enabled I cant access the server from my laptop or the Desktop, but when is Disabled every thing works fine.

Dose anyone know what setting I need to change in the firewall to get this to work?

Thanks

Matt

is your Virtual Machine, bridging your IP address with your actuall pc,
Or are they two seprate Ips?

If they are two seprate IP's make a rule which does not block internal range of your IP address.

# IP Address Device Name MAC Address
2 192.168.0.5 MATT-MAXDATA-LA 00:19:D2:D2:10:8C
3 192.168.0.6 MATT-VM 00:19:D2:D2:10:8C

When I look at the "Attached Devices" in my router Admin this is what is listed.

MATT-MAXDATA-LA is the Desktop PC

MATT-VM is the Virtual Machine

They seem to have different IP addresses.

How would I go about setting up a rule witch dose not block the internal range of the IP address?

I have one question for you,

Why are you using TWO firewalls ?


Your Netgear DG834PN - Had a built in NAT and Firewall.

I belive the Sunbelt Personal Firewall 4 has 3 levels of security,
Level 1 = should let every thing through
Level 2 = asks your permission before giving access to a resource.
Level 3 = Based on rules and filters.


What you need to do is load up Sunbelt firewall, and click Network security then click the trusted tab.

in that section you can put an IP range in,

However if you want my personal views, I would uninstall the firewall.

A firewall is only good as its users are. Hardware firewall, which is built into the modem is far superiour in its abilty to detect an attack.

While the ability to detect an attack could be similar between a hardware and a software firewall the big difference is that the hardware one being outside your machine it can actually stop it before entering your machine.
