Hi,

I have installed Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition in VMWARE Virtual Workstation 6.5 and I want to provide permission to other users so that they can access this virtual machine.

My local PC network configuration is :
IP : 10.10.10.20
Subnet Mask : 255.0.0.0
Gateway : 10.10.10.1

My Virtual PC network configuration :
IP : 192.168.1.2
Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0
Gateway : 192.168.1.1

In my virtual machine there are two network cards and I have assigned IP only on one network card.
Thanks
Anurag

Based on your Inputs, I feel that you have either used the NAT Mode or Host-Only Mode when choosing the Virtual Network Adapter for your Virtual Machine.

Does your Local PC use DHCP or Static IP Address ?

My local PC is on DHCP and in my virtual machine I selected bridged connection.

Are you sure about the Connection type, if your local PC is on DHCP and has obtained IP in 10.10.10.X Subnet, selecting the Bridged Connection type would make your VM to fetch IP from DHCP Server in 10.10.10.X Subnet and not in 192.168.1.X Subnet as you have mentioned above ?

You will have to set that vm networking as bridged, and set the static ip address to your virtual server directly into the windows 2003 server os.

Open the console of your Windows 2003 server virtual machine, then change the TCP/IP settings to static IP, with the 192.168.x.x address you want. It must be available in your network. Use the same settings as if it were a physical computer. Then, on the PC running vmware server, goto start, programs, vmware, manage virtual networks, look for the virtual interface vm0, and select "bridged". Go to the last tab, and stop/disable DHCP and NAT server. vmware server has embedded DHCP and NAT servers... You can also verify going to control panel, services, vmware dhcp and nat services. Sometimes, it's necessary to restart the host (vmware server physical PC) to the changes take effect. Hope it helps.

If you select the Virtual Network Adapter as Bridged then your VM IP should match the IP Subnet of your Host even if you want to provide a static IP address for your VM. It can be 10.10.10.2 or anything within 10.10.10.255.
.
If you do not want to have this, choose NAT or Host-Only which would then provide your IP Options in 192.168.1.X Subnet since both VMware NAT Service and VMware DHCP Service install themselves as Services and can be viewed under services.msc.

For more info, navigate to this path and check the config

Start -> All Programs -> VMware -> Virtual Network Editor.
