I purchased a dedicated server from Hetzner as well as 3 additional public IPv4 addresses. These addresses are on a different subnet than the main IP of the server and Hetzner has a very convoluted system that does their NAT, I've been fighting with it for a week and have given up at this point.
As it stands, the server is running Debian 7 and can be completely wiped. There's only one physical NIC in the machine, ideally I'd like to spin up a pfSense VM and route all of my VM traffic through that - I'm more than capable of doing that much but I can't seem to get any of the additional IP addresses live on the internet. When I attempted to install ESXi from Hetzner's repo it gave me an error regarding the drivers for my Intel NIC. I found the correct drivers and baked them into a customized ESXi 5.5 ISO but have been running into issues getting it to boot over the USB KVM that Hetzner provides. I will provide a to-do list below:
1] Install ESXi 5.5 on the bare metal
2] Verify connectivity to the server w/vSphere pointing at the public IP assigned to the server
3] Configure a vSwitch utilizing the other public IPs I've been provided so that they can be assigned to VMs for external/internet access
Please e-mail me if you require any more information.
