I have MacBook Pro and VMWare Fusion installed on it. I set a static IP for my virtual machine DHCP network by adding

host pc1 {
	hardware ethernet 00:0C:29:4A:C5:A2;

to a file /Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/vmnet8/dhcpd.conf.

Is it posible to have multiple static IP addresses set here? How?

Thx 10x!

Not really a programming question, but I think it will get answered on Super User. – Bill the Lizard Jul 18 '09 at 17:45
Can I ask why you want two different addresses? Maybe there is another solution to your problem. – heavyd Jul 18 '09 at 17:47

As far as I am aware you can not. The same limitation exist with statically assigned DHCP address on certain DHCP servers since they only allow the listing of a Mac Address once.

You can assign multiple IP address to the network card of the host IP address, or alternatively just add more Network Cards. It's a virtual machine so the amount of card you add shouldn't be an issue.

Yes, just add a second network card to the VM and set up a static assignment for that second MAC address. – freiheit Jul 18 '09 at 19:23
