Bitdefender 2012 Firewall + Vmware Workstation 7 = Fail
When running VMware Workstation 7 with Ubuntu server 11.10 in "bridge" mode (giving the VM its own independent IP address on the network) I cant get Bitdefender 2012 firewall on my host PC to let any outside network return traffic though. I can ping every other host on the network but I cant get any pings back from outside unless I disable bitdefender 2012 firewall.
Running VMware in NAT mode (sharing the ip address with my host PC) works without disabling the firewall but I cant run Ubuntu server that way.
I have been messing around with the firewall settings for about an hour and am ready to dump it completely.
