Can't access internet using Virtual XP Machine

I created a virtual XP Pro machine using VMware Fusion.  The installation went fine and the XP version was validated online.  However, if I open Internet Explorer I can't connect to the internet.  I tested tracert and can't locate server.  Any ideas what could be causing this problem.  The rest of XP seems to be working fine.

Check your Network settings for the VMware session, possible you are setup for NAT or something else. Typically you would want a Bridge connection to your local NIC.

It is setup for NAT.  I will try the bridge connection tonight (home computer). Hopefully it is a simple setting.

Thanks.

Go to Edit -> Virtual Network Settings -> Automatic Bridging And add any NIC which does not connect to the Internet.
Then you might need to restart the System in the VMWare.

Can you post the output if ipconfig, if that doesn't run.
