I am currently studying CCNP BSCI and are having trouble doing Cisco OSPF with VMWare 4.5.2 build 8848.
On a a Cisco 2612 router (ip=172.16.0.2/16), I enabled OSPF routing on e0/0 which connects directly to my PC. On a VMware guest running on win2k3 (ip=172.16.0.1/16), I enabled OSPF routing in RRAS and included the ethernet interface. I could ping from the cisco router to the vmware guest and vice verca.
The only problem is that I am having trouble estabilishing neighbor with each other. The cisco router is only able to estabilish up to INIT/DROTHER with the VMware guest while the VMware guest neighbor table is totally empty. The vmware guest shows that it sent packets but never receive nor drop any ospf packets.
I could establish full neighbor state from a cisco router to another cisco router, or from a vmware guest to another vmware guest but not from cisco router to a vmware guest. I have check that the hello packets interval on both cisco and vmware is 10 secs. Both are configured to be in area 0.0.0.0. I even tried RIPv2 routing and it works fine between cisco and vmware guest.
Any input would be highly appreciated.
