I have a simple node js web server that is listening for tcp on port 1058 and udp on 1059 which is in a ubuntu virtual machine. Everything works great with a bridged connection, but I need it to be a NAT connection to monitor the network traffic from wireshark. Bridged connections bypass the OS and can not be seen in wireshark.
I've forwarded the ports, changed it to NAT, and it's not working. Below are some images of my situation.
and if you want more, here's a snap of packets attempting to reach it from wireshark. The one in the middle is a ping from my windows host. and you see 2 source ip's because i have another device constantly sending udp messages to it as well.
I need some advice on what else I can troubleshoot. also, i have tried turning off my firewall. it did not work.
