    External Connections in VIRL 1.5.145

    bbriggs

      Hi,

       

      Has anyone had problems getting external connectivity to work in Version 1.5.145?

       

      I have been using Windows 10 and VM Workstation player. Windows 10 crashed and needed a rebuild and on downloading VIRL I received the latest version 1.5.145.

      I carried out the steps that I required previously.

      That is, I ran Windows Powershell as Administrator and pasted the following commands in,

       

       

      cd "\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Player\"

      ./vnetlib64 -- add adapter vmnet2

      ./vnetlib64 -- set adapter vmnet2 addr 172.16.1.1

      ./vnetlib64 -- set vnet vmnet2 mask 255.255.255.0

      ./vnetlib64 -- update adapter vmnet2

      ./vnetlib64 -- add adapter vmnet3

      ./vnetlib64 -- set adapter vmnet3 addr 172.16.2.1

      ./vnetlib64 -- set vnet vmnet3 mask 255.255.255.0

      ./vnetlib64 -- update adapter vmnet3

      ./vnetlib64 -- add adapter vmnet4

      ./vnetlib64 -- set adapter vmnet4 addr 172.16.3.1

      ./vnetlib64 -- set vnet vmnet4 mask 255.255.255.0

      ./vnetlib64 -- update adapter vmnet4

      ./vnetlib64 -- add adapter vmnet5

      ./vnetlib64 -- set adapter vmnet5 addr 172.16.10.1

      ./vnetlib64 -- set vnet vmnet5 mask 255.255.255.0

      ./vnetlib64 -- update adapter vmnet5

       

      I assigned the interfaces in VM Workstation so that the first bridges to physical LAN, the rest are Custom.

       

      I went into /etc/network/interfaces.d/br1.cfg and added the line "  bridge_ports dummy1 eth1" as indicated below.

       

      iface br1 inet static

        address 172.16.1.254/24

        netmask 255.255.255.0

        bridge_maxwait 0

        bridge_ports dummy1 eth1

        bridge_stp off

        post-up ip link set br1 promisc on

       

      I saved this file and restarted the bridge interface.

      sudo ifdown br1

      sudo ifup br1

       

      I validated the br1 status using this command in the VM, "brctl show br1"

      bridge name    bridge id          STP enabled      interfaces

      br1            8000.000c2968722f  no                   dummy1

                                                                                   eth1

       

      HOWEVER I CANNOT PING THE FLAT NETWORK FROM MY WINDOWS 10 WORKSTATION WHICH I REQUIRE AS I NEED TO TRANSFER CERTIFICATES TO SOME ASA NODES.

      Can anyone please assist?
