A Win 2008 Server runs (guest) in VMWare Player, on Win 7 laptop (host) The guest has installed software, Oracle, that demands the same IP address each time I start the guest. At home it works fine with reserving an IP address 192.168.1.128 for the guest in DD-Wrt based on MAC. On the road, or using Sprint\Verizon\T-Mobile wireless connection, different story. I even set up a vpn, thinking I could get the guest vm its 192.168.1.128 via pptp, but was unsuccessful. How do I set a static ip for the guest so that it always get the same ip, regardless of whether I connect the host to different networks??
- I have an understanding of bridged, nat and host-only in vmware
- I am using VMWare Player 3.1.4 and I have vmnetcfg.exe
I am configuring the guest via its vmx
ethernet1.present = "TRUE" ethernet1.addressType = "generated" ethernet1.connectionType = "bridged" ethernet1.virtualDev = "vmxnet3" ethernet1.startConnected = "TRUE" ethernet1.generatedAddress = "00:0c:ee:ee:ee:ee"
