I know there are many related questions, but I wasn't able to solve my problem.
Problem: No internet on guest Ubuntu
- Host OS: Windows XP
- Guest OS: Ubuntu 11.10
- VM software: VMWare Player
- Internet access on host via organization LAN, with company firewalls installed.
- VMWare Tools installed
- Tried sharing my LAN connection with other users. (Properties -> Advanced -> "Allow other users...")
- Tried changing the option from LAN to bridge connections. (VM Settings)
Though, I'm not sure if I attempted the above approaches correctly, especially considering that I don't know much about how these settings work and also considering the company firewall that exists.
