VMWare Server on Vista SP1 - WLAN Bridged, duplicate ARPs
Posted on 2009-12-26
I'm trying to run VMWare guest OS with VMWare Server 2.0.2 on Vista SP1. The only valid network connection is AVM WLAN via USB, which works good. This connection is not using the Vista WLAN service, but an own one.
IPv6 is not bound to the WLAN NIC.
When I want to bridge in VMWare, IP address requests and checks (DHCP, ARP) are done twice, once with the VMWare MAC, once with the WLAN MAC. The OS is thinking there are duplicate IP addresses hence. NAT and DHCP NICs work, but do not allow for LAN traffic of course.
