vmware: ip route doesn't route IP to the guest, keeps at host!

also noticed if i remove the ip route, i still have connectivity to the host, which confirms the host is stealing this ip somehow!

no reference to this ip address in the interfaces file you pointed out....

It depends on the linux distro that you are using. However try...

$ nano /etc/network/interfaces

Have you added that IP to eth0 or one of its aliases (eth0:X)?
If yes, then just undo that configuration.

Hey guys,

I'm having a very odd issue with one of my IPs.


The parent server hosts a bunch of virtual servers. All other IPs work fine. I'm using vmware, setting it to host-only networking, subnet mask on the guest OS is 255.255.255.255. ALL other virtual servers work and connect fine.

BUT, the host machine doesn't route this one ip to the virtual vmware adapter (vmnet1), it just keeps it to itself as a local IP address, so you can ssh to this IP and it connects to the HOST PC instead of the GUEST OS.

from my ip routing table on the HOST:

94.23.x.x dev vmnet1 scope link

this is identical to all my other entries (e.g.: 94.23.x.x2 dev vmnet1 scope link) which works just fine for my other virtual servers and their IPs.

Any idea what the issue could be?
