I am setting up a lab environment in VMware (ESXi 5.0) using a distributed virtual switch that is connected to a physical switch that connects the hosts together. The DVS is set to accept MAC Address changes, forged transmits and promiscuous mode. I have a default setup on the vyos router with just an IP address on the interface. When I ping the eth0 interface address from any VM, I get a response. When I try to ping the address of another VM from a VM or from vyos, I get request timed out. I have even tried set protocols static route 0.0.0.0/0 next-hop 192.168.150.1 and that did nothing different (I have removed it).
The subnet is 192.168.150.0/24 and the DG on each Windows VM is set to point to the .1 address on the eth0 interface of the vyos VM. Can anyone help me out? If you need me to post any code from the VM, I will need some guidance - I haven’t used any flavor of Unix/Linux in many years.
