I am running VMWare Workstation 7.1.0 build-261024 on Windows XP. I have an Ubuntu 11.10 set up as a VM.
I have connected the Windows XP PC and a Cisco 1252 AP (without DHCP) to a gigbit ethernet switch.
I wish to have the Ubuntu VM connected to the switch as well.
I've created a network interface which does that, however due to the fact there's no DHCP, I can't obtain an IP.
I've added an additional USB NIC and connected it as a "USB Device" to the Ubuntu VM and set a static IP on that, but I cannot ping the host PC nor can I ping the IP.
Is there any way I can allow my Ubuntu VM to be connected to the gigabit switch without DHCP?
