My System Specs


Your VMware NIC should be set to "Bridged". This will pull an IP directly from your router, and thus you'll be able to port forward it like usual.

By having VMware's NIC on "NAT", you are effectively double-NAT'ing your network, and as such making it impossible to port forward that traffic out/in.

Main goal: get Debian/Ubuntu to get an IP address from your router, likely Then in your router, either put that into DMZ or port forward the necessary ports to it. Personally I wouldn't open up SSH on the common ports. Use something unique to prevent script kiddies from hammering it.
