    Dear Sir;

    i have already installed the system at the below from on your perfect topics on howtoforge and in local placement system works great with bridged vnet1 virtual adapter

    4----isp config 3 (included programs also)
    3----debian lenny 5 guest (called marryjane)
    2----vmware v2
    1 ---debian lenny5 host (called blackboy)

    but the time comes to give up my little server to the server park and now blackboy has got satatic ip address and via nat (vnet8) sharing his interface with marryjane.
    when i began to configure port by port in nat.conf every things work well except receiving mail and i stucked the problem on vmware2.
    first of all i stoped the vmware and added port 25 for postfix in the nat configuration file but after the command:

    /etc/init.d/vmware status
    blackboy gives me:
    vnet8 service is not working gives me
    and i try to find the reason, i called my isp provider for asking "maybe spam blocking on port 25" but answer was no

    blackboy`s interface :
