Hi!

I installed free VMware Server -software (+ VMware Tools) just recently to FC5 (host) with success. And then I installed WinXPHome to be as a guest, that went also fine. But the internet is not working inside WinXPHome. Do anyone have proposals how to make it work??

Network Connection in VM settings (VM->settings->ethernet1) is selected as a Host-only. I have also tried other options with no luck.

I'm running FC5 in laptop with adsl connection. Internet is working in FC5.

Thanks!

Host-only means that the client can only connect to the FC5 host over the network connection. You must enable bridged or NAT networking in the VMware client.

thanks for the tip; enabling bridged solved the problem. I was sure I tried that already...
