VMWare server question.


Hi,
I recently downlaoded and installed the free version of vmware server e.x.p.and configured the hardware and set up a 8Gb partition. I went through the configuration script and everything seemed fine. i could power on the virtual machine etc.... However now I am having problems.
When I try and launch vmware I get an error message
"The lcoal vmware server is not installed, or is not currently running. Make sure the server is properly installed and try again"

I tried, as root "service vmware restart" and this happens...

Stopping VMware services:
Virtual machine monitor [ OK ]
Bridged networking on /dev/vmnet0 [ OK ]
DHCP server on /dev/vmnet1 [ OK ]
Host-only networking on /dev/vmnet1 [ OK ]
DHCP server on /dev/vmnet8 [ OK ]
NAT service on /dev/vmnet8 [ OK ]
Host-only networking on /dev/vmnet8 [ OK ]
Virtual ethernet [ OK ]
Starting VMware services:
Virtual machine monitor [ OK ]
Virtual ethernet [ OK ]
Bridged networking on /dev/vmnet0 [ OK ]
Host-only networking on /dev/vmnet1 (background) [ OK ]
Host-only networking on /dev/vmnet8 (background) [ OK ]
NAT service on /dev/vmnet8 [ OK ]
Starting VMware virtual machines... [ OK ]

I don't understand why I can't connect to my lcoal VMware server ??
Has anybody got any ideas. I get this error message if i try and start VMware as a normal user or as root. My firewall is disabled so i know the problem isn't there.

Anybody ????
Thanks in advance,
woppa

Looks like you took all the defaults - bridging and virtual networks.
We have to play around a bit, and untick those boxes when defining the clients. I don't pretend to understand all that crap, but got it working.

Play with creating another client, and see what works ...

The problem I have is that I can't even connect to the virtual machine, let alone create another client.
I may just ininstall and reinstall and see if that helps. Funny, that seems like something I used to do in winblows....
Thanks for the advice,
woppa
