Hi To All

Thanks alot for the suggestions , I left the mac address to automatic when creating the vps instead of actually typing in the mac address i assigned the ip failover too.

VPS now is working fine.

One again thanks to all who tried helping me out.

Yup, as above just turn the vm off, plus in the MAC in the adaptor settings and boot back up.

thanks for the quick reply

I did the Virtual mac for VPS and against each of the IPs I have a mac address.

Do i need to have this when creating a vps in the network adaptor ? currently it is set to automatic.

Thanks

Hi lee ,

Did you request v MAC address on the manager and set that up on the vm?

Hi,

I have a dedicated server with VMware ESXI 5.0. I want to create 3 windows vps machines on to it. So i bought 3 ip failovers.

I setup my first vps with windows 7 and i changed the Interent Protocol IPv4 thing and setup details below.

ip address - 178.32.54.113 (my 1st ip failover)
subnet mask - 255.255.255.255
default gateway - 37.187.73.254 (my server ip but with .254 at the end)
preferred DNS server - 213.186.33.99

After accepting this the vps wont connect to the internet.

So my question is, what am i doing wrong ? or what have i missed ?

I ahve contacted support which they keep saying they need a id, username, password. I gave them the main server login details which i used to login to vSphere but they keep asking me for vm id, username, password.

Any ideas ? please

Thanks
Lee

p.s. im a newbie at this creating vps on server stuff
