VM Ware and a minimac
Posted on 2009-05-04
I connected the wireless modem to a mini- mac. The mac connected fine. However, once I go into VMWare to go in to windows, no go. It cannot find the network. It is DHCP so I tried repairing the connection to get a new address. That didnt work. I checked the instructions to make sure it was configured correctly for windows, everything looks fine. And since I can connect from the mac side I obviously am getting internet. So to me it appears to be something in the VM software that doesnt pass things through. There were some network settings in VMware. I took a look at those 3 different options. The first one was NAT to share the internet connection with the mac. That was where it was set when I started. The second one was the Bridged connection. I switched to that to see if it would help. No go. Then finally, there is a third option which restricts to the MAC and of course I dont want that. How does one connect to a mini-mac thru a wireless connection using VM ware?
