Hi Gurus,

I would like to install solaris 10 on vmware in my laptop.
I have installed solaris  on vmware earlier, accessed internet from solaris, used putty to login to my solaris server in vmware from the same laptop, but i couldn't use putty to login to my solaris from machines other than my laptop i.e couldn't login from any machine other than the host system where vmware is installed.

Can you please let me know how should i go with installtion or network configuration so that i can ssh to my solaris from any other machine other than the host where it exists on.
like should i use dhcp, dns, if what can be the domain name. bridged or nat settings....

Thanks in advance
