cannot setup connection between slackware 13.37 and vm workstation 8


On Windows 7, I am running slackware 13.37 on vmware workstation 8 and I managed to create and confirm the connection between windows and Vm but from the guest os (slackware) I cannot connect to the host or the internet. Any pointers on where I can start troubleshooting?

Make sure you set up networking correct on your VMWare Workstation. Check this and this on how to proceed.
