Using vMware server unable to connect to the server with vmware server daemon
We can using netstat to show that vMware server daemon is listening on the port 904 using tcp
# netstat -anp | grep 904 tcp 0 0 :::904 :::* LISTEN 3786/xinetd
And we also disable the iptables daemon
# service iptables stop
Flush all the iptables rules in the filter table
# iptables -F
But we still can not use vmware server to login into the destined machine. Finally I found the problem is caused by the routing settings. Because the destined machine has a interface configued the ip-address the same subnet with the connecting machine. So the returned packet will route the different path with the forward path. So the vMware will show the destination is unreachable like the attached diagram.
