I'm running Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-123 K26AC USB AIO-64K on an RT-N66U router, that is running in gateway mode.
Everything is working, EXCEPT, I'm being blocked access to my esxi server ONLY from one workstation (happens to be my main workstation, so I obviously need this to work).
I've checked everything I can think of, and I cannot see why I'm being blocked.
A simple example of why I'm sure it's my router is the fact that I can ping the server, but as soon as I do an NSlookup to my ESXi box, I get "query denied". However, I can do an NSlookup to my NAS, and other machines with no problem.
This started after I was attempting to upgrade my ESXi box's network from a vSwitch to a vDS, and was having problems. I had to reboot a bunch of times and change configurations on my ESXi box several times. Since then, I cannot get to the machine.
To be clear of my network config :
Tomato (gateway) > Cisco SG200-08 switch > ESXi, NAS, Workstation (all 3 devices are directly connected to my SG200 switch).
I have made no changes to my switch other than to disable a LAG from the ESXi box (but I also unplugged a cable so it's essentially a single port to my ESXi box).
At first I thought it was my ESXi box, so as a test, I completely re-install the OS, then I updated the firmware on my switch, all to no evail. I then tested the ESXi box from both a mac and ipad, and the web interface loads. However, neither the web interface, SSH nor the vCenter client can connect to the ESXi box from my Windows 7 workstation.
I do NOT have my firewall enabled on my windows 7 machine (matter of fact I even have UAC disabled).
Also, as another test, I changed my ESXi box to a completely different static IP (from 0.10 to 0.60) just in case it was an IP based block, no such luck. Is there a location for block MAC addresses in Tomato ?
Any suggestions on what to check on my tomato build to see what is going on?
