    Where is "Virtual Network Editor"

    mrcuongnv Lurker


      I have just installed VMware 2.0 Beta on my Debian box successfully.



      I need to use "Port Forwarding" to forward a port form the host to a virtual machine. But I cannot access "Virtual Network Editor" because I could not find it.



      I read the User Guide and they said about that tool. Could you please tell me where it is?



      Thank you so much!

          In many of the products (I believe it's only in the current Workstation 6.5 beta), the Virtual Network Editor is for Windows hosts only.  Linux hosts must re-run the vmware configuration script to get to the network customization part.

            The 'vmware-config.pl' script offers minimal prompts for configuration unlike Virtual Network Editor.  Is there a thorough guide how to configure VMware Server networking options somewhere?  Stuff like 'port forwarding' to a NAT'ed VM in VMware Server are trivial with Virtual Network Editor on Windows but just not clear how to do on Linux.  Much appreciate pointer to a good doc on how to do this on Linux.
