    VirtualMachine NetworkAdaptor ConnectionState AllowGuestControl - How does it work

      Hi,

       

      I noticed that there is a setting on a VM's NetworkAdaptor called allowGuestControl. https://code.vmware.com/doc/preview?id=4206#/doc/vim.vm.device.VirtualDeviceOption.ConnectOption.html#allowGuestControl

       

      I found that it should work by using the VMwareToolboxCmd.exe command in VMware Tools according to the manual: https://www.vmware.com/pdf/vmware-tools-cli.pdf

       

      But when I use the "VMwareToolboxCmd.exe device list" command nothing lists, so I cannot find the connecd for connecting the NIC from within the Guest.

       

      Does anyone know how to do this?

       

      Best Regards

      Brian.
