I have installed Ubuntu 9.04 on a virtual machine using VMWare Workstation. I have Windows 7 as my host OS.
I want to connect to internet from Ubuntu. Can anyone please gives steps for connecting to internet through guest OS?

My solution was to delete and readd the network interface:
ip link. The output shows all the interfaces like this:
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000 link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00 2: ens33: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 qdisc noop state DOWN mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000 link/ether 00:0c:29:a5:cd:b6 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
ens33in my case) and set it to up:
sudo ip link set ens33 up
sudo dhclient ens33 -v
Worked with Windows 10 Host, Ubuntu 19.10 Guest and VMware Workstation 15 Player.
In your VMWare, go to Edit>Virtual Network Edits and create an add a new Network of type NAT.
Now, on your host goto Control Panel > Network & Sharing Center > Change Adapter Settings and look for your current connection that has internet access.
Right-click the network connection and go under Sharing. Allow the sharing and choose the NAT Network from the drop-down.
Now, on VMWare, go to the settings of Virtual Machine. Under Network, choose Custom Network and select the same NAT connection. Now, reconnect to check if the connection is established.

Have you enabled a network adaptor in the VM settings? NAT is the simplest option but bridged mode just as easy to set up if you have a DHCP server running on the network.
Is the network running in the guest? Do you have an IP address? If not:
sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
If you have an IP address in the guest it could the firewall on the host is causing the problem.
Workstation sets up bridge network VMnet0 for Bridge Networking for the guests. Bridged networking connects a virtual machine to a network by using the network adaptor on the host system.
You can enable it by right click on your Ubuntu Virtual Machine or
click on Network Adaptor and select Bridged, restart the guest if needed.
