I am using Vmware fusion in the LAB (on MAC computer connected to internet).
By default the VMs I have created so far got automatic IP address in the subnet 172.16.27.0

I have Ubuntu server VM, that I want to install DHCP on and configure it to hand out IP addresses in the scope of 192.168.1.0

I wonder how can I carry out this task.

Any help will be cry much appreciated.

Thank you

1. Disable the DHCP servie from VMware network settings.
2. Configure DHCP server on ubuntu
3. Use it in your network.

Why not change the range of DHCP in fusion itself to hand out 192 series IP's?

My MAC has IP 192.168.1.2, when I installed Vmware Fusion, then Virtual machines they got the IP in the range of 172.16.27.0

I am not sure why this happened, why Vmware fusion did not put the VMs in 192.168.1.0 Network

I set up DHCP on ubuntu to hand out IPs in from the subnet 172.16.27.0
and configured VM (windows 7) to get IP automatically, and set up the network adapter as shown in the screenshot below. However I a getting IP 192.168.46.128 on windows 7

AS you can see through snapshots, the IP s are handed out either through Vmware fusion DHCP 172.16.27.0  or if I disable it , the IPs will be handed out through DHCP of the wireless card 192.168.1.0

disabling dhcp will not be visible under the vm properties... Its a option which comes under Vmware Fusion Preference settings.
