Well, in the tech preview of Workstation 11 (thats Windows 10 running Workstation 11) it just works . I would still be grateful if someone could confirm this issue!
The issues you have reported are the exact same problem i'm having. I tried re-install VMtools on all of my guest systems no luck so far.
Same problem for me. Bridging does not work.
Tried to reinstall vmware tools on the guest machine.. and a reset of all network settings from the host system. I also temporary disabled firewall on guest and host system.
Guest system is windows 7, Host is Windows 10 TP)
A POSSIBLE WORKAROUND:
Switch guest system(s) to NAT instead. But this requires to setup port forwarding (if necessary)
Similar problem.Help me
Can anyone confirm if Vmware preview: vmware-workstation-full-e.x.p-1946049 guests works in bridge mode?
just downloaded the vmware-workstation-full-e.x.p-1946049 and and updated vmware tools on the guest machine.
But it does NOT SEEM to work with Bridging. Only NAT.
Can anyone confirm sporadical freeze on guest systems when using Windows 10 as host?
I have the impression that this freeze has something to do with network card
Removed the Network adapter from guest system and still sporadical freezes, So its off topic here ;-)...
In addition to this I often get the below error:
As much as I enjoyed using windows tech preview I had to revert back to using win8.1 until a solution is posted. Thanks for your quick reply
i was fighting with it and now i actually got it running in bridged mode.
The strange thing, I dont see VMnet0 in the Virtual Network Editor anymore...
So I have to correct myself and confirm that BRIDGING IS WORKING on vmware 10 and windows 10 TP has host system.
Removing all hardware devices in guest system and add them completely new, when using an existing VM does the trick
remove all hardware you mean everything including hard drives, sound card, USB controller, display & network card?
Well, I had only memory, processor display and one harddrive left. Not sure about USB.
The rest I have removed from the settings of the existing VM.
Then I did a reboot, then shutdown, then I added network in bridged mode, powered on the machine and it was working...
As I have already written in my previous post, the strange thing is I do not have the VMnet0 anymore in the VNE, see screenshot below. But its working!
I tried the ideas in this post.... Still not working here....
Any other ideas or tests I can do ???
if you click on "Change Settings" it runs as Administrator and then you'll probably see the VMnet0. If not the case, it is because when you update your Windows 10 TP from the first version to the second (at this moment I don't remember build number), I don't know why Windows destroy the VMnet0 and you can recreate it simply by click on "Restore Defaults".
This is my experience with Windows 10 TP and the last preview version of Workstation 11.
I have however the same problem of the post with Windows 10 TP and Workstation 10.
