Vmware, Windows XP, VNC What a confusion!...
I installed Vmware Workstation on my Windows XPs PC, using as Vmwares networking option, Network Bridging. Networking between my Virtual Machine (Guest)'s XP and Real Machine (Host)'s XP did not work, until I reconfigured Host's XP network connections in order to disable DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol - the protocol for automating the configuration of computers that use TCP/IP). Since all TCP/IP settings were manually configured, networking between my Virtual Machine (Guest)'s XP and Real Machine (Host)'s XP is finally working! However, I have 2 problems, and they are the reason for posting this question when I am working inside XP VM, I need to see the SCREEN and the CPU LOAD of the RM, in real-time. I installed a VNC Server (I have already tried the 3 main VNC services TightVNC, UltraVNC and RealVNC) on RM, and the respective VNC Viewer (Client) on VM What did I get? - VNC Viewer (Client), installed on VM, shows the screen of the VM itself (it is a confusion because I am seeing my own screen it is like installing VNC Server and Viewer (Client) on the same machine and typing localhost = 127.0.0.1 in the Viewer (Client)... Then I tried the reverse process VNC Server on VM and Viewer on RM and then, everything OK I could see the VM's screen from my RM. Why this happens? How can I solve this?? Routing? Port forwarding (redirecting)? DNS Server that distinguishes Internal from External IP (which?)?
In what refers to the second problem I do not know what application allows me to real-time monitor the CPU load of the RM when I am inside the VM. I tried many freeware applications, some pure binary (.exe + .dll) and others web-based using Windows' Active Desktop (http://Internal_IP_of_RM:port
Thanks in advance!
