Hi guys, I have a beginner's question I'd like to ask.
I want to set up my own home lab on VMware workstation 16 and something doesn't add up.
First, my simple network topology is the following:
Background information: I saw somewhere that I should go to Virtual Network Editor and add a Vmnet with DHCP disabled with a 10.1.1.0 IP so it could be assigned to an additional interface for the PA VM and for the Windows 10 Network Driver.
So I created a VMnet3 with DHCP off and IP 10.1.1.0 and assigned it to the third Network Adapter (eth1/2) for PA VM and also for the Network Adapter of the Windows 10 machine.
All the above were completed, and still, I can't ping anything from my Windows 10 machine (not the interface, nor the internet). The Windows 10 machine is not visible on any traffic logs, and I'm pretty sure it's not reaching the network for some reason. I'm sure I'm missing something still, I just don't know what exactly.
YOUR HELP IS HIGHLY APPRECIATED.
If you want to save yourself a lot of time and know without a doubt the Palo config is good to go, use our XML-API based solution builder, IronSkillet.
Instructions on pulling the container to Docker are here.
Then you are able to import a skillet using the following link here (use the github repo).
After that, in two clicks you'll have rules and topologies built to best practice. This will further confirm that you may require more troubleshooting within VMWare.
