No network connection Ubuntu VM
Jun 12th, 2009 at 5:39pm
 
Just downloaded and fired up this VM:

http://www.vmware.com/appliances/directory/147323

Using VMware

All seems to have gone well, except I have no network connection, as indicated by red-X over network icon in upper right-hand corner (near date).

My 8.10 VM fired-up with the network working automatically upon first boot, so I expected the same from 9.04.

Using 4-year old laptop, Intel-based, WXP, with Broadcom 802.11g network adapter, on home wireless netrwork (which works fine).

Can somebody (Magoo) help me connect this VM to the 'Net?

I tried right-clicking on icon and selecting 'Enable networking' but that didn't work.

Listed under Wired connections I have:

* Auto eth1 | never
* Wired Connection 1 | never

The network on your VM is going to be a virtual one, which will look like a wired connection from within the VM.  It should automatically use the wireless connection on the host side, but on the guest side it will look wired.

Can you open a terminal and type the command "ifconfig" and "route show" and paste the output here?

I run Ubuntu 9.04 (64bit) on my laptop and my home desktop, and the network worked automatically in both after install (including wireless on my laptop,) so I suspect there is something going on with this VM.

Just means that the virtual network connection is bridged to the physical one.  You should also try NAT, if it gives you that option.

In Linux, the command is "ifconfig" with an F.  As in InterFace config.  IPconfig is the windows version.

The route command didn't do what I wanted.  Try "netstat -r" instead.

Hmmm.  You're not getting an IP address or default route.  Try running "sudo dhclient eth1".  it will ask for you password.  that should connect you to the internet.  Let me know what output you get from that.

If not, try setting your network connection to 'NAT' instead of 'bridged' in VMWare and then restart the VM.

hahaha.

NAT didn't work. But then I noticed in VMware menu:

VM > Removable Devices > Network adapter (NAT) >

.. then there are 2 options (either):

* Connect
* Settings...

I clicked on (selected) 'Connect' .. and instantly the circular network thingie in Ubuntu started spining (made me smile) .. few secs later > Voila!

Connected!

Tell me it wasn't that easy .. that all I needed to do was select 'Connect' in VMware.

The solution is almost always easy once you know what the root of the problem is =)  Glad we found it.
