this isn't anythign to do with redhat. the virtualiszation handles the network connectivity and just presents an virtual ethernet devices and DHCP. if your host is working correctly and you've selected the right network setup then it will just work. what type of networking are you using? are you getting an IP on the host?
Note that you can't install "vmware". vmware is a company, not a product... is this player? server? workstation? esx? esxi?
I have installed vmware workstation.
i have changed the linux ip address by using the system-config-network command in graphical mode. and in turn i have also changed the vmware network adapter vmnet1. bt still i cannot connect the net. what to do now??
could you please give a step by step instruction on what should i do??
Your VMWare network adapter settings need to be Bridged or NAT-ed (I don't have VMware, I use virtualbox) to let the Virtual host access outside world (internet).
Then inside Virtual machine I can manually configure Network adapter address or let it DHCP (because my router has it) and it works
i think bridge connection won't solve it. because that need an external lan connection. but here in this case i am using inside my window. so my present connection type is set to nat(it is one of the vmware workstation settings).
previously the ipaddress was blank i changed it to one of class A ip address. i thought i needed it to connect it the internet i need to give it an ipaddress. that's why i changed it. did i do it wrong?? then what should i do now??
