Promiscuous mode = server failures (yes, I have read the VMware articles)

VMWARE WORKSTATION VERSION: 6.5.0 BUILD-118166

HOST: openSuse 11 (latest updates)

GUEST: FreeBSD 7 (BIND 9.4.2)

PROBLEM: When promiscuous mode kicks in le0 shuts down and BIND master to slave transfers fail. I have read articles:

and have done the following on my openSuse 11 host:

chmod a+rw /dev/vmnet0 and /dev/vmnet2 (both are bridged to separate ethernet ports and subnets)

vmware_server:/dev # ls -al vmnet0

crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 119, 0 2008-10-29 12:33 vmnet0

vmware_server:/dev # ls -al vmnet2

crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 119, 2 2008-10-29 12:33 vmnet2

vmware_server:/dev #

I am not logged in as root on host machine, so the above should work. But this is what I continue to see:

Does anyone out there know how I can fix this permanently?

Thank you in advance...... :smileyblush: :smileygrin:
