Interesting challenge getting SSH from outside to my VMWare guest

Hi,

I'm working on getting more acquainted with VMWare and the SUSE SLES OS, so I've downloaded and created a guest running SLES 11 SP1. This works great, no problems. However, there's some funny-ness (is that a word?) when I'm attempting/testing to SSH from outside my local LAN into the guest.

Let my sum up my setup:

The VMWare server
- Is a Windows 7 with LAN-ip 192.168.1.66 (static).
- The guest is running with a bridged configuration, not NAT.
- Windows Firewall has been disabled in an attempt to get some data in the SUSE firewall logs.

Another PC in my LAN
- Is also a Windows 7 with LAN-ip 192.168.1.65 (also static).
- Connects just fine to the VMWare guest on 192.168.1.77 (see next section).
- Has Windows Firewall running fine (also attempted to disable)

The SLES guest
- Is configured with LAN-ip 192.168.1.77 (also static, obviously).
- SSH port has been changed from 22 -> 1337.
- The SUSE firewall allows SSH from 192.168.1.0/24 to make it accessible from my LAN area (this is going to be narrowed down later, just to please the security minded people Smilie)
- The SUSE firewall DOES NOT allow SSH from outside the LAN, but should be allowed on a IP-by-IP basis.

External Linux Debian VPS
I have an external Linux Debian VPS solution. When I ssh to my WAN IP from this, and supplying port 1337, it just eventually times out, clearly indicating something's amiss somewhere in my configuration.

My ISP-provided router setup
- Portforwards port 1337 to 192.168.1.77

So, what I'm pondering about is what I can try to get the traffic actually arriving at my guest. I have read alot about running the guest in NAT configuration and then using the VMWare tools to portforward port X to the VMWare's assigned IP address.

I am not really very experienced in networking (which is why I'd really like to avoid a NAT solution until I get a hold of stuff), but I have the idea that if I without further ado can access my VMWare guest from my local LAN just by providing the statically assigned IP, I would figure that I'd get it off just by portforwarding the assigned SSH port directly to my guest's IP?

I hope that I have provided sufficient information but if not I shall happily provide additional details as necessary. I hope that you might be able to push me in the right direction

NAME
findsmb - list info about machines that respond to SMB name queries on a subnet SYNOPSIS
findsmb [subnet broadcast address] DESCRIPTION
This perl script is part of the samba(7) suite. findsmb is a perl script that prints out several pieces of information about machines on a subnet that respond to SMB name query requests. It uses nmblookup(1) and smbclient(1) to obtain this information. OPTIONS
-r Controls whether findsmb takes bugs in Windows95 into account when trying to find a Netbios name registered of the remote machine. This option is disabled by default because it is specific to Windows 95 and Windows 95 machines only. If set, nmblookup(1) will be called with -B option. subnet broadcast address Without this option, findsmb will probe the subnet of the machine where findsmb(1) is run. This value is passed to nmblookup(1) as part of the -B option. EXAMPLES
The output of findsmb lists the following information for all machines that respond to the initial nmblookup for any name: IP address, NetBIOS name, Workgroup name, operating system, and SMB server version. There will be a '+' in front of the workgroup name for machines that are local master browsers for that workgroup. There will be an '*' in front of the workgroup name for machines that are the domain master browser for that workgroup. Machines that are running Windows for Workgroups, Windows 95 or Windows 98 will not show any information about the operating system or server version. The command with -r option must be run on a system without nmbd(8) running. If nmbd is running on the system, you will only get the IP address and the DNS name of the machine. To get proper responses from Windows 95 and Windows 98 machines, the command must be run as root and with -r option on a machine without nmbd running. For example, running findsmb without -r option set would yield output similar to the following IP ADDR NETBIOS NAME WORKGROUP/OS/VERSION --------------------------------------------------------------------- 192.168.35.10 MINESET-TEST1 [DMVENGR] 192.168.35.55 LINUXBOX *[MYGROUP] [Unix] [Samba 2.0.6] 192.168.35.56 HERBNT2 [HERB-NT] 192.168.35.63 GANDALF [MVENGR] [Unix] [Samba 2.0.5a for IRIX] 192.168.35.65 SAUNA [WORKGROUP] [Unix] [Samba 1.9.18p10] 192.168.35.71 FROGSTAR [ENGR] [Unix] [Samba 2.0.0 for IRIX] 192.168.35.78 HERBDHCP1 +[HERB] 192.168.35.88 SCNT2 +[MVENGR] [Windows NT 4.0] [NT LAN Manager 4.0] 192.168.35.93 FROGSTAR-PC [MVENGR] [Windows 5.0] [Windows 2000 LAN Manager] 192.168.35.97 HERBNT1 *[HERB-NT] [Windows NT 4.0] [NT LAN Manager 4.0] VERSION
