'VMWare Server : bridging over wireless not working'

categories: - Wifi

I was not able to get the bridging network mode working for my virtual machines under VMWare Server. Then, I figured out I was using the eth1 interface (the wireless interface), while the bridge mode was probably bound to eth0 (wire interface).

This is how to fix the issue :

$ sudo vmware-config-network.pl

Would you like to skip networking setup and keep your old settings as they are? (yes/no) [yes] no

Do you want networking for your virtual machines? (yes/no/help) [yes] yes

Would you prefer to modify your existing networking configuration using the wizard or the editor? (wizard/editor/help) [wizard] w

The following bridged networks have been defined:

. vmnet0 is bridged to eth0

Do you wish to configure another bridged network? (yes/no) [no] yes

Configuring a bridged network for vmnet2.

Your computer has multiple ethernet network interfaces available: eth1, vmnet1, vmnet8. Which one do you want to bridge to vmnet2? [eth0] eth1

The following bridged networks have been defined:

. vmnet0 is bridged to eth0 . vmnet2 is bridged to eth1

VoilĂ , now set up your virtual machine to use vmnet2 as networking device, the virtual machine will now be a part of your LAN.
