He freeborn, as I mentioned out above - I have only ONE public IP so I need NAT.
After several hours of "trial and error" I found the solution.
1. I had to include 2 lines in vmware nat.conf
Nothing else as portforwarding using iptables!
Than - and this seems to be a bug within vmware-server - I had to start the vmware-image using a vmware console tool (vmware-cmd /pathtoimage/image.vmx start) instead of using the remote "VMWare Server Console".
And: now it works ;-)
Thank you for all the hints!
