Ubuntu 7.04 – VMWare-Server Network Problem Solved


Running the very cool Ubuntu and trying to setup VMWare-Server to host Vista.

If you cannot for the life of you get the networking to connect to your LAN – simply add the following to your vm’s .vmx file – using these steps:

  1. locate your vmx file e.g vista.vmx (within the folder that you store your virtual machines in)
  2.  scroll down to just under the line Ethernet0.present = “TRUE”
  3. add, on a new line, ethernet0.virtualDev = “e1000”
  4. restart /etc/init.d/vmware

et voila !!

worked a treat for me – from the original thread
