I have a physical windows system, on which I run VMware Workstation. On a VMware virtual machine I run Ubuntu 12.10 and a LAMP webserver.
Problem: Now my local IP address for my virtual NIC (the one Ubuntu is using) has an address of 192.168.159.7, and my home router only issues IP addresses in the range 10.0.0.x. So if I want to port-forward to the virtual NIC, which has a 192.168 address, I cannot, so my LAMP webserver cannot be accessed externally since the router does not know to send the packets on port 80 to the virtual NIC... How do I fix that? The only way, I guess, is to assign a 10.0.0.x ip address to the virtual NIC??
But how do I do that? I tried to do it on the host Windows machine with 'Get my IP address automatically' but it issues a 192.168 address every time...
