Vmware Network Configuration..


I have Vmware Server 2 downloaded from vmware.com into my Laptop connected through Dial-Up connection, installed the same on Linux Machine.I have two Instances running on the Server. I selected Bridge Network and am able to ping each other successfully. Now I am facing issue while installing a new package. If I do :

ping google.com

It is unable to connect.
I have 3 options: NAT, HostOnly and Bridge. I tried selecting all one by one but things dint work.
I only want to run :

yum update

But its not working.
Any Idea how can I install package on the same.

If I understand your slightly awkward phrased first sentence correctly you run VMware Server on your laptop and within you have two VM guests. Is that correct? If it is, you should understand that Bridged mode means the VM guest will be treated the same as any other (physical) host on your LAN, meaning it can get a DHCP lease from your dhcpd/LAN router which won't work if you're on dial-up. In NAT mode the VM guest will share your VMware hosts network connection.

Sounds like you didn't read up on VMwares network functionality yet. Please do. Randomly clicking GUI buttons in the hope some configuration will work is not a good thing. Besides saying "didn't work" does not provide information while posting vmnet configuration, guest ethernet device and routing information would.

I am sorry if I couldnt mention the way it should be.
What I really needed is My Two Guest Instance should be able to use my Vmware Server/Laptop Network Connection.
So You assure " That NAT can solve the Issue" Right?

It'll work and you can easily test it. Reconfiguration/restart takes one or two minutes, right?
