I have a new ESX server 5.5 that I am trying to get Debian Linux to work on.  I have it installed and I can get logged in but I have no network connection.  Is there any good instructions on how to do this?

if not installed vmware tools then try by adding E1000 interface else i would also suggest to use VMXNET3 along with installed tools.
