I set my Network Adapter to the NAT setting, and ran an ifconfig for my machine. All the I got back was eth0 and lo. eth0 has the static IP configured I configured back in the days where I was running my VM Bridged with DHCP. Do I need to reconfigure my eth0 settings now and if so how?
Take out your static network settings and change the
bootproto to DHCP, then reset the network and routing services.
Depends on your distribution, e.g.:
service network restart
/etc/init.d/networking restart (deprecated)
/etc/rc.d/routing restart -- restart routing services, specific to BSD I believe.
Or simply reboot.
