Suse 9.1 as guest OS under vmware 4.5 (XP host): Network problems


Hi!

I am using Suse 9.1 under vmware 4.5 on a windows xp host.
The XP host establishes the DSL network conncetion through it's ethernet adapter.
I want vmware, or better to say Linux guest operating system to use this (already established) connection.
However, I have not been able to get it working.
I have primarily tried the "Bridged networking" option (VMnet0).
In windows I see two virtual ethernet adapters,
VMnet1 (Host-only), with DHCP activated, IP address 192.168.65.0 and VMnet8 (NAT), with DHCP activated, IP address 192.168.183.0.
VMnet0 is not mentioned there.

Is bridged networking option the right one if I want to use the DSL connection that was established by the host OS?

How do I have to configure the ethernet adapter inside the guest OS (Suse Linux 9.1)? fixed IP address / DHCP etc.?

Do I have to activate any kind of bridging between the ethernet adapters within windows? Ok, this may be the wrong place to ask that...

Anyway, I am looking forward to your help!

Werner

P.S.: I looked through the help pages on vmware.com but it was not conclusive to me.

Performance

Hi,
ich habe auch Suse 9.1 auf einem Windows XP Host installiert.
Bei mir läuft Suse aber so langsam, dass es keine Spaß macht, damit zu arbeiten.
Läuft bei dir alles OK?
Ich hab einen P4 mit 2,8 GHZ und 1,0 GB RAM. Ich denke das sollte ausreichen.
Danke schonmal auch wenns keine Antwort zu deiner Frage war!

@ Butts,

yes, Suse 9.1 is running very fast on my system (Athlon64 3200, 1GB RAM), it seems to run faster than on my earlier machine (Athlon 700MHz) in native mode.

You have to specify a static ip address for bridged

You cannot use bridged networking with a dynamic ip address. You must specify static for the host and each guest you install.
