Hi, I am trying to run a small lab in Vmware for my school project where I have an F5 big-ip load LTM with 30-day trial and one client connected to the external interface, and one server connected to the internal interface. After installing and configuring server, client, and big-ip where I configured management ip, interfaces, and server pools, I still can’t ping to the big-ip from the server. And also can‘t ping to the big-ip from the client in the external network. I tried almost everything. Firstly I thought the problem will be in the Vmware network settings where I have: these host-only networks (I also tried NAT segments which still not working).
Then I thought that problem could be in workstation compatibility which I set by the requirement of BIG IP. So after all of this and the new installation of all of the virtual workstations, the network still doesn't work. Can anyone help? Or had anyone this problem before?
