Dec 15, 2010
I have Ubuntu Server 10.10 installed which is guest OS on a XP host. The problem is I cannot connect to the internet. I am using bridged network but still it fails to connect. what configuration should I change in VMWare or should I have to modify anything in XP.
MY OS IS (Widnows XP ) I'm Using VMware Workstation 7 to run My BT4-Beta (backtrack 4)
in my OS Windows XP I have Internet I'm in big network our administrator using Cyberoam Client for Corporate to allow people using Internet.. so if any people connect this network they should has id in Cyberoam if they don't has id will can't connect to the internet.. they will redirect automatically to the log in page in Cyberoam.
So ! in VMware Workstation 7 i configure network adapter to Bridged and i see internet icon with green color but dose not browse internet and also i can't ping my computer this is mean network dose not appear to backtrack my computer is in the network when i try to do ping this is what happened.
And this output to try run network!
And this is my ifconfig
How to do Step by Step to connect the network using VMware WorkStation!
I had put my computer on standby and when i restarted it, it powered off within a few seconds. I turned it back on and after that i've lost connectivity to internet on Ubuntu 10.04.
However I have VMware (XP) installed and internet/network works on that. I'm a newbie with Linux.
Here are some outputs:
I have tried to edit the connection using System>Preferences>Network Connections. I entered manual settings for IPV4, but whatever i enter there, it doesnt get reflected when i type ifconfig in the terminal window. I tried setting it to Automatic DHCP as well. Doesnt work.
I'm unable to boot the LFS-6.6 which i've built on a vmware workstation 6.5. i had no trouble in installing all the packages and have managed to run all the test suites successfully w.r.t stable LFS-6.6. while booting i get 'kernel panic' and it says unknown device /dev/sda1 and unknow block (0,0). i've only one primary partition without any swap partition. i've a label assigned to /dev/sda1 and have included it in my fstab file. device.map shows 2 entries:
One for the floppy and the other for my harddisk which is- hd0 /dev/sda. this is for the 2nd time i'm stuck at a point after perfectly installing all the stuff as mentioned in the LFS-6.6 book. i've also noticed on this website the many users have similar type of issue. it would be great if somebody could help me. note: while configuring the linux, i've inbuilt everything required for my system, including support for ramfs and other required filesystems, scsi driver etc.
My host machine is on a intel core 2 duo processor. my virtual scsi hard disk is 3 GB in size and is a ext3 fs. scsi is configured with LSI Logic which is recommended by vmware while adding an hard-disk.
I am using ubuntu on a vm with 2 network eth0 ( internet, getting the ip by dhcp on modem adsl) and eth1 (10.1.1.1). In other vm an windows machine with 10.1.1.2 / 255.255.255.0 / 10.1.1.1 /10.1.1.1). I can ping to linux and windows with no problem. Then to share I used
Have just installed Ubuntu 9.10 in Vmware workstation 6.5.1 and unable to connect to external sites, or servers (using NAT). I can ping on host name and IP but can't resolve either host or IP in browser (Receive message the connection has timed out). I can't ping the host (Windows 7 Professional) IP from the guest and vice versa. I use a mobile wireless network card, and my Windows operating systems work successfully in vmware. Currently in my VMNet8 properties I just have Obtain IP address and DNS Automatically (same as host).
I want to run a mail server from within debian linux guest with vmware workstation xp host. The setup is a bridged network connection
Here are things that need to be done:
a)Configure the Guest with a static IP on my home network. Verify that I can telnet to port 25 of the Guest from a system on my home network.
b)Then configure my home firewall/NAT box to forward incoming connections on TCP port 25 to the static IP address I gave my Guest. Then test that I can telnet to port 25 from a system outside my home network.
c)After that I need to configure the appropriate DNS records for my domain so that outside hosts know how to contact my mailserver.
I have installed the latest version of Ubuntu Linux (11.04) into latest VMware workstation (7.1.4 build-385536). I have tried to install the VMware tools ISO that came with VMware workstation but It didn't work and the installation seemed real sloppy anyways.
I installed the open VMware tools from synaptic within the guest linux and restarted, everything seemed to have been installed just fine but VMware Workstation doesn't detect it. I'm not sure if the tools are outdated, silent errors happened, or if any manual post installation steps need to be taken.
getting any form of VMware tools to run in Linux and detected by VMware Workstation.
I just upgraded to VMWare workstation 7. I was previously running v.6, and an older linux version, and everything was working fine. I moved over the same VM files to the new computer, and it doesn't find the ethernet connection. When I start up the virtual machine, I get an error message:
Could not connect Ethernet0 to virtual network "/dev/vmnet8". More information can be found in the vmware.log file.
There log file doesn't say much more:
Jan 07 17:31:36.928: vcpu-0| VNET: MACVNetPortOpenDevice: Ethernet0: can't open vmnet device (No such device or address) Jan 07 17:31:36.928: vcpu-0| VNET: MACVNetPort_Connect: Ethernet0: can't open data fd
Once xp has booted, I get the "new hardware" wizard, saying that it found an ethernet adapter. However, it can't find any driver for it. I think this dialog started appearing after I added a new virtual network entry using the "Virtual Network Editor". Originally I didn't even have a /dev/vmnet8 file. Now I do.
Im using fedora 13 x64 install from DVD. Has anyone else found problems using vmware 7.0.1 or 7.1. My bridged networking will not pickup a dhcp address, and even if I configure static my network will still not work, yet NAT works fine. Even configuring bridged to use a dedicated device doesnt work. Workstation worked fine on Fedora 12 but this seems to be a reoccuring problem in every other release.
I want to install debian on vmware workstation 7.1.4 but there's a problem! when I try to install vmware tools or open-vm, it can't complete compile modules of vmware. It is a big problem... It seem problem of kernel version after 2.6.37... But I can't find solution. logs.... Before you can compile modules, you need to have the following installed...
I started playing with Natty Narwhal (11.04) last week. I have a Toshiba Portege R700 laptop with 4GB of memory. Firstly, let me say that when I run 11.04 on the bare metal laptop (installed via WUBI) it appears to work flawlessly. That is, both the ethernet (hard wired) network and the wifi network work just fine.The networking problem occurs when I try to run 11.04 as a (Type 2) VM in VMWare workstation with an underlying o/s of Windows 7 Enterprise.
In this mode, the ethernet network works fine but the wireless network does not work. The o/s does not even see the wireless card. I have downloaded and installed about 216 MB of updates from the update center to no avail. I have "bridged" the VMWare "virtual switch" across to both the ethernet port and the wireless port (see below):Basically, it appears that the interface is not being presented to the VM.Also, of interest, Unity which works fine on the bare metal install does not run on the Ubuntu 11.04 VM.
I am trying to setup a dhcp server for my internal network. I have two NICs, a modem, and a wireless router. I have my server connected directly to my modem which is providing me with Internet access on eth1 and is working fine. I have dhcp and dns setup on eth0 which is connected to my router. The router shows that it is connected to the Internet but when the router gives a client computer an IP address, the client is unable to connect to the Internet but can connect to the router. I will post my configuration files below with my current configuration.
when i try and run the latest vmware workstation, i get an error at compiling virtual machine monitor it says: Unable to build kernel module. See log file /tmp/vmware-root/setup-7625.log for details. When i try and go to the folder vmware-root it says i do not have the required permissions. I'm on the latest 11.04, i really need this working.
im running suse 11.3_x64 clean install along side with Win7 Pro _x64 had a big fight installing Vbox 3.2.8 PUEL edition but i need to test some VMWare products like 'VMWare vShpere (ESXi 4..0.1 - which i couldn't install in a vm in Vbox) ' before putting it in production enviroment in some of my clients. version: VMware-Workstation-Full-7.0.0-203739.x86_64 The installation of vmware was quite simple with no errors. the problem kicks in after the first reboot when i try to run it. before installing vmware i installed the following:
When i try to run vmware workstation the 1st error kicks in: Before you can run vmware, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel:
Currently I have an Acer Aspire One netbook with Windows XP on it. I want to switch to Ubuntu, so I have the OS on a flash drive and I can run it fine. The only problem is,I cant see any wireless networks in range. I know the router is working because I can connect with Windows fine. A notification also pops up telling me i have to install missing drivers. But when i click on install, the progress gets to 99% and fails. It says i need the Broadcom B43 driver, but i don't know how to get it.
I've been trying for 3 days now, gone to a couple of ubuntu sites, asked some friends who unfortunately don't have the time to assist me, and gone through several forum responses on here to try to find the solution to my problem.The problem is my inability to connect to my wireless network. I have a linksys USB device for my wireless, and the wireless router is literally right next door to my room. I am able to find my router and my neighbor's router from my computer. However I can not connect to my router. It is WPA enabled, and I have the correct password. It is just unable to connect to the network, it tries for a few minutes then doesn't connect at all and says wireless network disconnected. I am currently hooked up to an unsecured wireless network, but I can't connect to the internet. I am using firefox, but it doesn't seem to connect to any site I try.

I have been using Windows XP, and last month i had Linux Mint installed. I was connecting to the internet with an external modem and everything was running fine, until while experimenting with the settings,i bust the whole thing. What i did was to do a "right click" on the 'computer icon' at the bottom right-hand corner to disconnect and from that day i am unable to connect from Linux, but i can still do it under Windows.I had done the same thing under Windows but after going to the 'control panel/network settings' i managed to get the thing working.I went to the 'control panel' in Linux, and under 'network ' i get the message: "Auto eth0 => never". i have been trying to 'edit' the 'settings'
Just purchased a Dell Inspiron 580 MT tower pc with Windows Professional. However unable to connect to the network or the internet when I load a copy of Ubuntu Karmic on dual boot. Windows networking and internet working fine. Is this an ethernet adaptor hardware issue? Broadcom NetXtreme 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet controller-PCI Express card Will try later connecting through a usb ethernet adaptor to see if this is really the problem.
I cant connect to the internet wirelessly or with a RJ45 connection. Last week my son came round and thought it was very call the internet worked fine then.

They have all stopped being able to connect to the internet in the last few days. My Windows 7 set up still connects though it seems to be a slow to establish a connection.Could BT have changed something and if so what?
