VMWare Tips and Tricks


If you are new to vmware , do check Tarry's article hereto get some idea . Below i try to explain some of the errors while using the VMware for the first time. Note: You can also check VMware website and their docs for more details

I cant communicate between host and virtual machines
- Check your vmware network settings . In case of Bridge Connection, by default your host machine's physical network card (say eth0) is mapped with vmxnet 0(virtual network adapter) though you can change it.Virtual Machines communicate with the host machine using vmxnet0-eth0 interface.

I cant communicate between my Linux virtual machines
- Check your Linux machines' firewall settings(if needed disable it)
- Edit /etc/xinet.d/telnet and mark the disable attribute to no (disable=no)
- Reload the xinet.d service (/etc/init.d/xinet.d reload)
