I have an Oracle Enterprise Linux 64bit VM running on my Windows 7 64bit machine. I have enabled the NAT as my network adapter, however I am still not able to connect to internet from within the machine.

Inside linux the eth0 shows as up

Please note that I am within an Office network and have installed the VMware tools

I had the same problem. It happened when the host connected to the LAN after the VM was launched. – Heandel May 31 '11 at 9:58

It's probably one of the following:

  • For some reason the guest doesn't get an IP from the artificial DHCP provided by vmware
  • You have an over-zealous firewall
