network settings for mozilla, while running it on VMware


Im using RedHat Linux 9 Virtual Machine on VMware 6.5. Its default network settings are NAT. Whereas, the Host OS (Windows XP Pro) having an active DHCP network connection.

Guest machine's Mozilla is setup with the same connection settings as of the Host OS's Mozilla but whenever I try to run a website on linux's mozilla, it prompts me for DHCP username and password and regardless of how many times I provide it with the info or placing a check on "use password manager to remember this password" it keeps on refreshing and asking me for this info from the scratch.

I want it to accept it permanently.
