vmware player with netware client can't find tree

I created a VM of my old notebook using the new VMware Converter. It has the netware client 9.0 installed and connects to a Netware 4.11 server. I start the VM on my new Windows 7 notebook using VMware Player, but it won't find the tree. The VM NIC is set to NAT and can get to the internet, so I know the NIC is working. Any ideas on what to try?

Set the network connection to bridged.

Should I put a check in the 'Replace physical network connection state' box?

Neither worked. What do you mean by 'state replicate'?

I think you will find that the description states replicate physical network connection.

anyway did you change to Bridged, the VM should get an IP address from your local network.

If the VM is on the local network with no firewall it should have no communication issues between netware client and edirectory.

Can you confirm it receives an ip address from dhcp, same subnet as you lan?

As far as I know netware 4.11 doesn't have tcpip enabled by default, and I don't think VMware would work with IPX/SPX. If you enable tcpip on the server and configure it I suppose it may then work.

I have tcpip working on the netware server, and I get a correct ip address. I can ping the server. I think 4.11 does require ipx/spx to connect. The protocols are loaded on the VM's NIC, but it still won't find the tree. Is VMware not compatible with ipx/spx?

IPX/SPX is not required to connect to Novell Netware 4.11 to gain access to NDS.

Andrew Hancock (VMware vExpert / EE MVE^2)VMware and Virtualization ConsultantCommented:
In NetWare 4.11, Novell incorporated the NetWare/IP software into the NetWare product. NetWare/IP is a set of server and client software modules that provide access to a NetWare network using the TCP/IP transport instead of or in addition to the IPX protocol used in traditional NetWare networks.

The netware client can use either transport which is bound to the NIC either TCP/IP or IPX/SPX.

I got it working. After changing it to bridge, I went in and changed the frame type to 802.3 then back to Auto. After I did that it works now. Thanks
