Could not connect windows host to linux guest on vmware.
 
Hi,
Im new to linux, it was nice to work with linux on virtual machine , but suddenly yesterday when i try to connect using putty from my windowsxp machine its showing network connection error. I dont know what happened.

In linux machine ifconfig shows only 127.0.0.1 , could not trace problem , guide me to trace the problem.

Previously it used to give 192.168.1.2/192.168.1.3 it used to vary every boot . ftp also stopped working . Im clueless.

My system setup:

Del inspiron 1525:
RAM 3G
HDD 160G
Linux RHEL3 on VMWARE


regards

can you check the network modules?
Code:

lsmod
also, did you just apply any patches or updates?

lsmod :

it didnt show any network modules.

Try running the following command (as root):
service network restart

It should restart networking on your linux box. Does it show eth0 restarting or eth anything?

I did service network restart:

it is giving :

divice eth0 having different MAC address than expected, ignoring;

Thanks for the tip.
It helped me find the right file to edit:

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

Just updated the HWADDR value and rebooted the system.
Problem solved.
