I've been using VMWare Player 4 on my Windows 7 PC, running my VMs under a bridged networking configuration without any problem. I settled on bridged networking two reasons...
- I often use VMs to host web applications for test purposes.
- I never could get NAT to work for me anyway, but no love lost, considering reason #1.
Now that I've upgraded to VMWare Player 5, the situation has completely reversed. In other words, bridged networking no longer works at all, and NAT does.
Has anyone else come across this? Any ideas on getting bridged networking to work again?
This happens with both Windows and Linux guest OSes. VMWare Tools has been fully updated. I've tried the usual vmnetcfg.exe utility fix, to no avail.
