connecting two vm machine via named pipe ?


Hi folks,

I used to connect two vm in vmware via named pipe by doing this
Code:
\\.\pipe\com_1
but this no longer works after I migrate the images to my laptop (running linux), so I took some look at vmware's manual, which says "In the Path field, enter /tmp/<socket> or another Unix socket name of your choice."

Now, here is the problem. When I look into my /tmp, I only see the following items:
Code:
gconfd-cyu021   mapping-cyu021  orbit-cyu021    vmware-cyu021
keyring-G5pKgM  mcop-cyu021     ssh-TQUtcF7962
Please tell me what to do and what should I write into the "PATH" during the named pipe setup process.


Thanks in advance,
James

i don't understand what the problem really is... can't you just create your own socket if there isn't on already there?? does mkifo not give you the right results?

I got it now.
Just enter a <writable path>/<custom name> in both vm's named pipe path, and it'll work.


Thanks for replying,
James
