Networking doesn't work for CentOS 5 within VMware ESXi


hey ... i still don't know what happened on my end ... as I can not get CentOS 5 to find the outside world when it is inside VMware - esxi.

CentOS 5
IP addy of the VMware Box = 192.168.1.4 (dual NIC - only really lets me configure one of the NICs - possible issue?)

CentOS IP = 192.168.1.40

I can of course reach the VMware box from the outside world as I am working from within the console ... pinging it and it sees the outside world - so it's setup is fine.

I can ping 127.0.0.1 and 192.168.1.40 as well. Firewall is turned off as well as SELinux. I turned off iptables as well (just in case firewall was running - it made no difference of course).

ifconfig gives me for eth0:

Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0C:29:8A:5A:5C
inet addr:192.168.1.40 Bcast:162.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
inet6 addr: fe80::20c:29ff:fe8a:5a5a/64 Scope:Link
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:777 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:251 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
RX bytes:88194 (86.1 KiB) TX bytes:17126 (16.7 KiB)

all of this is on a Dell PowerEdge SC 1425 ... it has two nics, but the VMware gui really only allows me to configure one of them ...

ANy thoughts out there? I posted this at the end of another thread, but then thought better of it and decided it needed its own thread.

How have you configured the guest networking? The usual ways are either via a virtual switch or interface bridging.
Given that your host and guest are on the same subnet, it should be bridged... you should check this.

It's configured when you create the VMWare guest. You might be able to alter the guest parameters while the VM is stopped to enable bridging.
