I’ve run into a problem recently.
I am trying to move some of my websites over to a new physical server I’ve rented.
here’s my current setup :
HostPC running Debian & vmware server & virtualmin - 1 dedicated IP address
VM1 virtual system running ubuntu desktop & webmin (for easy apache access) network : 192.168.227.0
VM2 virtual system running ubuntu desktop & webmin (for easy apache access) network : 192.168.227.0
I’ve setup a virtual server on the host, configuring it to Proxy to website : http://VM1.local/
if I browse from the host PC to that address, it works perfectly.
however when I browse to the domain of the virtual host, I get an error access denied from the HOST (it shows it’s running debian OS), it seems the proxying does not actually do anything…
I’ve tried forwarding port 81 on the host to the VM1.local, which does work, so the configuration on VM1.local is OK…
Also I’ve tried setting it up with IP addresses, which does not solve the problem…
all help is highly appreciated!
