Bridged connection problem with VMplayer

April 23, 2010 1 comment

Playing around with VMplayer 🙂 I was having trouble getting my bridged connection to work. I then realized that my vmnet0 was trying to bridge wlan0.
Editing the /etc/vmplayer/locations file adding the following:

answer VNET_0_INTERFACE eth0
file /dev/vmnet0

-where eth0 is the desired host interface- and running as root:

#/usr/bin/vmnet-bridge -d /var/run/vmnet-bridge-0.pid -n 0 -i eth0

solved the problem! and no need to restart the VM btw… linux is so nice…
Other solution is to run vmware-config.pl but i dont seem to have that file 😦

Regards,
Centi.
