Locked myself out, any way to reconnect?
Today I was busy trying to fix an internet problem, so I accidentally locked myself out of my server by trying to bridge a WAN and a LAN gateway.
I can no longer ping the ip address of any of the virtual machines on the same server, so does anyone have any suggestions how I might be able to get back into the GUI? Maybe by connecting by cable?
Any suggestion is appreciated!
Go to the console and restore previous config.
How can I still go to the console?
I have to access it through vmware, but don't know how to reach it now.
So host console has no provision for presenting VM consoles? Even Oracle VirtualBox does that. No network required.
Managed to get at the console, finally.
Spurred on by your thoughts, I decided to go all out, so I got my server off the wall (to make room for the vga cable), got a spare monitor and stuff. Managed to revert to a previous configuration.
