Subject: What am I doing wrong

I have two subversion repositories - one hosted on a Linux standalone
server (using Apache 2.0) and one hosted on a Linux machine - that is a
VM sitting on a VMWare ESX server.

I can access the repositories of the standalone machine from a standard
browser using the URL http://machine_name:9999/projects/docs (SVN Repo)

When I try to bring up the URL of the repository on the Linux VM on
firefox on the Linux VM, I am successful. But when I try and bring it up
on another machine I cannot and get a message that says 'Connection was

I cannot even bring up the Apache Home Page @ http://machine_name:9999
on a different machine

Both use Apache 2.0.58.

What am I doing wrong here - are any host name entries required on the
Linux VM? Why are the repo's on this machine



Joe ,

I've worked a bit with ESX and I know you have to specifically configure
ESX to allow the VM's access to the physical network adapter to allow
traffic from the outside onto the virtual network within ESX. By
default, ESX sets each server up on a virtual, internal network just
between the virtual servers, and you have to specifically allow access
to the physical network and assign/get an IP to get access. That might
be the simplest problem, and would explain why you're able to access it
from inside.

Also, do you have a host record or DNS entry set up for your VM machine
that links it's name back to its IP address? You might try acessing it
from your client workstation using the IP address to verify if the
problem lies in name resolution. Generally, if you're not getting the
Apache test page, you should verify connectivity on lower layers, ping,
traceroute, etc. to make sure you can actually hit the server.
