Setting up Server on CentOS, manage from Windows

Post by zerowalker » Sun Jul 26, 2020 11:23 pm

Hi!

I am trying to setup the VPN server from CentOS (Hyper-V) and mange it from Windows, but i can't seem to make it work.
The server seems to be running but i can't make it accessible outside of the servers localhost.

Searching around seems to tell me it has to do with some linux limitation or security thing which prevents you from making it work with one NIC or something.

I would appreciate assistance in getting this to work if someone has the knowledge.


Thanks!

Indeed, you cannot manage or connect to it from the same nic (even if it's a vm with a bridged nic). Save yourself a ton of hassle with bridges and buy a 2nd nic.

Oh that's a shame, was hoping i could have the it run virtually and manage it from my host etc.
Don't think i will get a separate nic just for this sadly. Thanks for clarifying:)
