I am using VMWare player on Ubuntu to run a CentOS VM. I usually connect to it using Bridged and an Ethernet connection and specify a static ip for the VM. How would I connect to my VM without an Ethernet connection?

    if you mean that you don't have an eth0 on your host, the guest can use the lo interface as it's bridge point and you can add a route. Dec 31 '10 at 1:11

VMware or any other virtualization solution should allow you to connect a VNC client to the console. If I recall correctly, you have to use VMware's management software to do this.

  • I can do that. If I don't want to use VNC and instead want to ssh in from a terminal, can I do that?

    Not with VMware AFAIK. KVM claims it can pipe a virtual serial console to a tty, but I haven't had much luck actually getting it to work. Xen does this all day every day. Dec 30 '10 at 23:28
