    Re: HowTo: Windows (XP) on Ubuntu with VMWare Server

    If you are having trouble getting vmware server installed, you will need to install the vmware-anyany109 patch, which you can get here:
    http://ftp.cvut.cz/vmware/vmware-any...date109.tar.gz

    extract it and run the update script runme.pl, then run the vmware-config script and you should be fine.

    If you still have trouble, reinstall vmware by doing a sudo apt-get dpkg --purge vmware-server
    Then manually delete the directory /etc/vmware, then install vmware-server again. But when it gets to the step where it asks if you want to run the configuration script, say no and apply the patch.

    Just a note:
    I wasn't able toget the file from the above location (server timed out; busy, I imagine)
    I found it here:

    Re: HowTo: Windows (XP) on Ubuntu with VMWare Server

    Why does this keep saying command not found!!!!! ARG....

    --start--
    name@domain:~$ vmware
    bash: vmware: command not found
    name@domain:~$ sudo vmware
    sudo: vmware: command not found
    name@domain:~$ bash -l
    name@domain:~$ vmware
    bash: vmware: command not found
    name@domain:~$ sudo vmware
    sudo: vmware: command not found
    --end--

    Alright I'll try the purge thing, thanks for the help.

    --start--
    name@domain:~$ sudo apt-get --purge vmware-server
    E: Invalid operation vmware-server
    --end--

    I can't figure out what's going on with your system. It looks like you only have the vmware services installed, not the graphical console.

    Let's go back to the start.
    1. From the vmware site, get a serial number.
    2. From the vmware site, download the package: VMware-server-1.0.3[etc] .tar.gz
    3. Unpack the package to, say, a directory on the desktop
    4. Change to the directory you created and run the installer
    5. Use synaptic package manager to upgrade the kernels for Feisty.

    VMware services will be started automatically. To run the console, a menu item should be under Applications-System Tools (though mine got lost when I upgraded to Feisty). So I. as you were doing, start from the console or a short cut.

    So, is there anything in there that doesn't sound familiar?

    VMWare Server works, but internet doesn't

    I set it up NAT, tried bridged connections, direct connections to my DSL, but no luck. Gimme a clue?

    hiya, thanks for the nice howto!

    You might add to the tips section that Feisty users (and ppl with newer kernels) need to use the "vmware-anyany109 patch" to complete the installation. x64 users may also need ia32-libs package installed (at least I did) to complete private network setup part.

    Re: HowTo: Windows (XP) on Ubuntu with VMWare Server

    hi,

    this howto works fine on my girlfriend`s pc with dapper drake. And there are no Problems at all.
    i get connections from the vm-client to the host system and to any other pc in our network (samba, ftp, http, ssh ...)

    I`m on Feisty and i have some problems to get a connection from the vm-client to the host system.
    i followed this howto and it worked out of the box,
    http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-to-ins...tu-feisty.html

    but i`m not able to establish a connection to the host system, either via samba or ssh.
    the vmware-server logfile looks ok, no errors or something like that.

    does anybody has a similar problem or such strange behavier?

    the clients are working in bridged mode and are able to connect to the internet or stuff like that, but is not able to get a connection to the vmware.server.

    thx
    aspen

    The easiest way to install VMserver these days is with the version in the Canonical commercial repository.

    When you install from the repositories, it sets up three virtual networks:
    bridged
    nat
    host only

    If you want your vms to talk to your host, then they should have a virtual network card connected to the host only network.

    If you want them to talk to both the host and other machines on the network, and your network has a dhcp server, then you can connect the vms to the nat network.

    If you only want your vm to access machines other than the host, then use bridged.

    (I have a virtual firewall connected to the bridged and host only network, and my other vms connected to the host only network.)

    Re: HowTo: Windows (XP) on Ubuntu with VMWare Server

    hiho,

    thx 4 the quick reply veloce!

    i got it working now,
    i switched the vm client which is hosted on my ubuntut 7.04 to NAT networking and it worked.
    now i`m able to connect to the host system via smb, ftp or ssh without having any trouble.
    but therefor i have some issue to get connections to other hosts on the network. internet is working fine, but browsing the network is tricky. if i now want to map a networkshared to the vm hosted on my ubuntu 7.04 i have to write down the "FQDN" of the host.

    for exampel:
    my girlfriends pc (dapper drake)... she just boots her vm client in bridged mode and has every service available provided from our network.

    if i boot my vm clients, they are working in NAT mode, i`m able to surf the web, able to connect to the host system, but if i want to map a shared i have to type e.g. \\marla\clarkconnect.lan\shared
    and not as my girlfriend just \\marla\shared.

    i also had to manual add the dns from our network as a second dns entry in my vm-clients to reach services on other mashines in our network.


    anyway, i`m glad now that i got it working with your help, even it`s not the same way as it was on dapper drake.


    update:
    i added the dns-suffix and wins from our netweork to the vm client, and now everything seems to work as it was before on dapper, except that my mashine is working in nat mode than in bridged mode

    thx again
