VMware Player on Linux, bridge networking

view full story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I am having trouble with VMware Player 4.0.3 for Linux. I am trying to run a linux virtual machine guest (from the linux host), but am unable to successfully get an IP address on the guest with bridge networking. I do have an internet connection and I already ran vmware-netcfg and changed the bridge mode from "Automatic" to my sepcific network card. I have also ran the command "sudo vmware-networks --start" which completes successfully. Any help would be greatly appreciated (HowTos)
