I have the following context:
- Work under Windows 7
- Want to develop Ruby on Rails under Linux
- Want to use X-Windows (e.g. Sublime Text or other tools)
- Have installed Cygwin and X-Windows
I have now the following problem: When I am offline, my host machine (Windows 7) has no IP address. When I then try to start X-Windows (locally), this works well, but I have no IP address to define the display variable for starting e.g. an xterm under Linux in the VMware image. The VMware image (Ubuntu Linux) has a stable IP address, being online or offline, but my host machine (Windows 7) has not.
Is there something I can do to work offline with X-Windows in the VMware image? I can of course use
tmux and the like, but I would like to know if there is a solution to that problem.
