Question VMware


I have just successfully installed vmware on my Mandrake 9 OS with the guest OS being Windows 2000 on the vmware emulator. Windows 2000 is operating perfectly except for one thing I have no Internet connection. How can I configure vmware to allow my Windows 2000 OS to connect to the Internet.

You have to first configure VMware for networking before setting your Virtual Machine (Windows 2000) to use the network.

run as su (super user)

Then answer the questions.

Next you can add the network connection for your VMware file.

Bridge in VMware is a virtual bridge that seperates the two sides of networks for exampe B and C. Bridges helps to decrease the time it takes to talk to computers by only sending out a signal to B side instead of sending out to both B and C like a hub does.

NAT in VMware acts like a virtual router or a decent firewall for all your virtual machines. The virtual machines may not see your real computers and the real computers may not see your virtual machines too. Selecting NAT is a good way if your Linux box has a cable or dsl modem directly connected to it and you don't want to pay for additional IP addresses.

BTW, there is no wizards in VMware.
