I have install VMware 5.1 and i installed it on Windows server 2008, and i want connect with internet..
i have RHEL 5.1..and NAT setting is being completed ...
and when i restart network services on RHEL 5.it show everything failed..
Now let me get this clear, you have installed (vSphere client, vCenter Server) or VMware on your windows server 2008?
As far as I know VMware itself is an OS and cannot be installed as client software on different OS.
Now this Red Hat 5.1 you are talking about is one of the vm in your VMware server?
and why do you want NAT to connect to internet or is there something you have missed to inform us?
First clarify these things so that I can help you further with your doubts
As far as I know VMware itself is an OS and cannot be installed as client software on different OS. (Yes Sir you are right. Vmware is just a software.which i have installed on Windows server 2008.and i want to work only on one machine,but with different-2 OS(operating system)

Sorry for being late reply,actually i was little unwell..

But you have mention that i have to configure a static ip address,so when i check my window network property,there was two Vmware network adopter available their,and the ip address of both adopter detail is 192.168.X.X and 192.167.228.X ,so i have to use any one ip address between these two or some else...please advice me ????????
you have to use the range of IP which comes under your main network i.e which you use to connect to internet. You should know better about that.
Any how you should use the IP range shown under " Broadcom NetLink (TM) Gigabit Ethernet".
