Cannot create a wired connection with CentOS Linux/V1804 virtual machine.
I have installed and updated the current version of CentOS Linux using VMware Workstation 12.5.9.
I cannot create a wired network connection no matter how many options I have tried whether it's with the KDE gui, via console commands or the built in console utility 'nmtui'.
Of interest upon installation of CentOS into a virtual machine the only connection which is available is a DHCP connection, which works, and the problem of not being able to create a wired network connection seems to be with VMware Workstation. There were suggestion that I have to make changes in the Workstation Network Edition; have no idea how to work with the VMware Network Edition.
On other virtual Linux machines and other versions of VMware Workstation creating a wired network connection just worked without any issues.
Any help with this issue will be appreciated. I'm using a Natted connection and defining the virtual connection using standard IP options, nothing special.
