I have vmware and I installed Ubuntu 12.04 on that I want to make LAN that with my host which is windows 7. I change my Windows Ethernet card to 192.168.1.1 and subnet mask 255.255.255.0,Also in ubuntu I set my etho to 192.168.1.3 . But when I ping 192.168.1.3 in windows 7 I just see destination unreachable and Vice Versa I mean when I ping 192.168.1.2 in Ubuntu I see that ICMP message again I know there is something in Vmware Network interface configuration between "Bridge" and "NAT" and "HostOnly" but I do not know HOW can fix this
I suppose you are using VMware Workstation.
It is not necessary to use the bridge mode which directly connects the virtual machine (guest) to the physical network the host machine (host = the physical machine) is connected to.
The other two basic options work too:
VMware Workstation also contains a DHCP server. You can check the settings and change/create additional
Do not forget to check the firewall settings both on host and guest.
You need to configure the virtual ethernet interface assigned to the Ubuntu guest in bridge mode. This way, the virtual machine is placed in the same subnet as the physical host and can have an IP in the same broadcast domain, allowing bidirectional communication over TCP/IP.
