I've been trying to set-up a host-only network between my Virtual machine Linux (Guest) and Windows 8.1 (Host) to share Internet connection of Linux VM with Windows 8.1 host. the Linux distribution i'm working with is Kali-Linux. internet connection is in VM and i want to bring it to host computer and from there share it between other computers using ICS.
First, i tried to disable any ICS that was already running in my host Windows and then in VMware workstation settings, network adapters settings, set the network to host-only and i know that it will enable host-only network on VMnet 1 (Virtual network adapter). so i successfully connected to internet in my Linux VM but there was no internet connection coming to my Windows host through VMnet 1.
Second, i tried to set the custom options in VM settings and manually set the adapter to be VMnet 1 but still no luck.
i think there are some interference with IP addresses of my Windows and VMnet 1.
Windows (Host) IP address is 192.168.1.5 and the VMnet 1's IP address is 192.168.209.1 and it's DHCP server is 192.168.68.254.
i tried to change them using Virtual network editor of VMware worksation to set the IP address of the host-only VMnet 1 to 192.168.1.10 and it's subnet ip to 192.168.1.0 but when i go to details of VMnet 1 in Windows, it still has the old configuration.
do i need to configure my Linux VM too or am i doing things wrong? thanks in advance.
