CentOS Router: Configuration in Vmware

In preparation for an upcoming hackathon, I began working with CentOS as a means to route traffic between two VMware machines: a ParrotOS machine, and a Metasploitable2 machine – both configured on different subnets.

For this tutorial I used the following:

  • VMware Workstation 15
  • ParrotOS
  • Metasploitable2
  • CentOS (Minimal Installation)

CentOS Router Configuration

First, let’s configure the CentOS router to forward traffic between the ParrotOS machine (residing on network and the Metasploitable2 machine (residing on network
