Suse 9.1 as guest OS under vmware 4.5 (XP host): Network problems
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!
P.S.: I looked through the help pages on vmware.com but it was not conclusive to me.
