I have a linux VM that Im assgining two network cards to.
eth0 (autodetect vmware settings) eth1 (private to my mac vmware settings)
This is the content of my
auto eth0 auto eth1 iface eth0 inet dhcp iface eth1 inet static address 172.16.230.129 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 172.16.230.1
The reason for this setup is so that I can have a static IP on my vmware without limiting the connectivity.
ie: if I make eth0 static to a given IP and I move networks, I will not longer be able to connect. In the past, share with my mac has not worked in some network environments (my school)
With that said,
I want to be able to ssh into the my vm using the 172.16.230.129 connection. However, its timing out right now.
