Vmware Player-Guest as internet gateway

Recently one of my friend asked me about setting up a Internet gateway on Virtual Guest system and configure that for other virtual machines and Host to connect internet.

The following steps used to test this successfully.

Details of the setup

Systms used all are Linux.

ppp0 -> Internet connection using USB dongle.
Eth0 -> Interface used by default with vmware player.

IP Details
ppp0 -> DHCP by ISP.
eth0 ->

The following lines can be saved in /etc/rc.local   permanently.

echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
iptables -A FORWARD -i eth0 -j ACCEPT
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o ppp0 -j MASQUERADE

All done. This machine become Linux router.

Setup for other virtual guest.
Command line
ifconfig eth0
route add default gw


On HOST System

Add route
sudo route add default gw vmnet8
add DNS server IP inside /etc/resolv.conf

IP is already there on vmnet0.

After setting up route. The gateway guest system may loose IP address. Just set the ip address with following command
ifconfig eth0
