Networking with a VM on FC3

I'm not sure whether this is really applicable to the networking forum but it did say anything is game

I need to run my Win XP unfortionately [To develop a program in C# for my college course - it has to be done in a visual environment so not very multi platform encouraging. What it is ur asking? If you have to know... Tetris] so I decided to run it in a Virtual Machine without granting it inet acces [horros w/ blaster worm etc] but now I need to download the Sharpdevelop and .net framework and somehow transfer it to the VM environment..

My mate did suggest somehow using Samba but I'm a leek when it comes to doing anything other than launching FF on FC3....


[While were at it - is there anyway to stop the remote admin sys [SSH??? no...thats the protocol...] /service/daemon? from starting on bootup [in fact choose daemons(?) and programs launched on bootup] I appreciate his help when loggin into my machine but I don't want it open 24/7... [and if he walked me through my probs I could do it myself the nxt time round...]

Thanx x2

VMware comes with a built-in stripped down samba to allow you to mount a linux filesystem. This option would have needed to be included when you installed VMware, so you may not have that option. You could re-run the or whatever the filename is.

Beyond that, you have multiple options in the settings of a virtual machine. Bridging the network card, NAT'ing it, or some other choice I don't remember at the moment. Choose either bridge or NAT as both should allow you to get internet access to the virtual machine.
