I have a FreeBSD Virtual Machine (using VMWare Player) and I can't seem to be able to get access to the network/Internet at all.
I have tried both bot "Bridged" and "NAT" connections (from the VM's Settings), but neither seem to work.
While I was trying the "Bridged" Connection type, the ONLY thing I was able to do was I could ping my Host computer but nothing else. Not a router at 192.168.1.1, or anything else other then the host computer.
Then, while trying the "NAT" connection type, I can't ping anything at all, not even the host...
I've been messing around with this for 2 days now and I've tried Googling the heck outa this, but no such luck finding a resolution.
I disabled the firewall thinking that may help, but it did not.
FYI: Here are some errors that are just coming up in the terminal, and I can see them in "/ var / log / messages"
inetd: /usr/libexec/bootpd: exited, status 1
bootpd: Can not get my IP address
inetd: bootps/udp server failing (looping) . service terminated
It shows these same errors over and over and over.....
ifconfig Output: this is while in "Bridged" mode for the Network Adapter

If anyone has any suggestions, PLEASE feel free...!
Thanks in Advance,
