I'm using VMWare Fusion 7.1 on Mac OS X. All the VM's that I've downloaded connect to the internet automatically when I fire them up. I downloaded a new VM from VulnHub, specifically BrainPan2. (Here is the info about it if needed: https://www.vulnhub.com/entry/brainpan_2,56/)
This one does not connect to the internet automatically even though it is supposed to. It is a vulnerable VM setup for security penetration testing. Now, I fire up my Kali VM, do a network scan, and see all my computers. I'll fire up an unrelated virtual machine, run the scan again, and confirm that the new one appears. Now, I fire up BrainPan, run the scan, and nothing. I don't see it on the scan.
I've read multiple guides related to the BrainPan2 VM from the internet, and everyone else seems to be able to plug it in and go. From the BrainPan site:
It will get an IP address via DHCP,
So, I've set the VM to run on NAT, Bridged and also Host. I cannot detect the VM by any means, it just doesn't auto-connect. And I obviously can't login and hook it up since it's made to hack. Upon my research, I've found another similar question on this site but the gentleman provided no info in his question: Can't get nmap info from Brainpan2
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Edit: It states in this article: http://blog.techorganic.com/2013/11/19/brainpan-2-hacking-challenge/
Brainpan 2 has been tested and found to work on the following hypervisors:
VMware Player 6.0.1 , VMWare Fusion 6.0.2 , VirtualBox 4.3.2 Import
brainpan2.ova into your preferred hypervisor and configure the network settings to your needs. It will get an IP address via DHCP, but it's recommended you run it within a NAT or visible to the host OS only since it is vulnerable to attacks.
I'm on VMWare Fusion 7.1.x, could that be the issue?
