Has anyone else found any VMware (not user-contributed) documentation on how to apply any changes made to the NAT configuration file (/etc/vmware/vmnet8/nat/nat.conf)?
I see that several users have stated that vmnet-natd must be restarted, but very few say how.
Why is there no documentation (that I can find) for vmware-networks (/usr/bin/vmware-networks)?
That should be referenced in multiple locations.
/usr/bin $ vmware-networks --help
vmware-networks version: 0.1
Usage: vmware-networks [--verbose | -v] <option>
Use exactly one of these commands:
--migrate-network-settings <location of settings file>
--help | -h
A "sudo vmware-networks --stop" followed by a "sudo vmware-networks --start" will restart virtual networking, incorporating any port forwarding definitions in nat.conf and do so cleanly. Why is that not documented anywhere?
Also note that vmware-netcfg aka Virtual Network Editor will remove your port forwarding definitions if you click "Save".
