I'm using VMWare to emulate Ubuntu on my Leopard MAC OSX.

The ip changes everytime I put the mac in sleep mode.

I was wondering if I can avoid that.

thanks

@aking1012 what do you need to know in order to give me some istructions how to do it ? –  Patrick Dec 30 '10 at 19:18
    
networking setup....private, nat, bridged, etc. it is simple with bridged. you should also be able to configure the vmware ip reservations with nat. it's about needing more detail on what networks you are connecting to and what your virtual networking setup is. if any is acceptable there are a bunch of options –  hbdgaf Dec 30 '10 at 19:30
    
@aking1012 All right, it is NAT. But I can select other options.. so what do I need to do ? thanks –  Patrick Dec 31 '10 at 14:43

set a static IP on the host just outside of the vmnet nat dhcp scope as discussed here: http://communities.vmware.com/message/1546583?tstart=0
