NAT Configuration for the RN150 Virtual Appliance

If your SNMP access is restricted to certain IP addresses, and you have a server that is included in that access (i.e. a physical server running existing monitoring software), you can run the appliance in VMware player or VMware Workstation on that server with NAT configuration so it will be seen as accessing the appliance through that host.

Setting the virtual appliance to use NAT with VMware Player & VMware Workstation can be done in the following ways:

VMware Workstation

  1. Edit virtual machine settings
  2. Highlight Network Adapter
  3. Select ‘NAT: Used to share the host’s IP address’
  4. Select ok
  5. Power on the Virtual Appliance

VMware Player

  1. Select ‘Player’
  2. Select ‘Manage’
  3. Select ‘Virtual Machine Settings…’
  4. Select ‘Network Adapter’
  5. Select ‘NAT: Used to share the host’s IP address’
  6. Select ok
  7. Play the Virtual Appliance
