    VMware Connect to Internet over Ubuntu

    Hello everyone, I have a minor problem with VMWare Player 3. After downloading 64-bit Ubuntu 11.04 and trying to install it, I get a message saying "Could not connect Ethernet0 to virtual network "VMnet8". More information can be found in the vmware.log file.
    Failed to connect virtual device Ethernet0." Regardless of Host-only, NAT, or Bridged connections, it doesn't work!

    On vmware.log, I found:

    May 22 13:51:10.963: vmx| DICT ethernet0.present = TRUE
    May 22 13:51:10.963: vmx| DICT ethernet0.connectionType = nat
    May 22 13:51:10.963: vmx| DICT ethernet0.virtualDev = e1000
    May 22 13:51:10.963: vmx| DICT ethernet0.wakeOnPcktRcv = FALSE
    May 22 13:51:10.963: vmx| DICT ethernet0.addressType = generated

    and

    May 22 13:51:12.558: vmx| Ethernet0 MAC Address: 00:0c:29:20:93:f0

    and finally

    May 22 13:51:12.744: vcpu-0| VNET: MACVNetPort_Connect: Ethernet0: can't open vmnet device (997)
    May 22 13:51:12.744: vcpu-0| Msg_Post: Warning
    May 22 13:51:12.744: vcpu-0| [msg.vnet.connectvnet] Could not connect Ethernet0 to virtual network "VMnet8". More information can be found in the vmware.log file.
    May 22 13:51:12.744: vcpu-0| [msg.device.startdisconnected] Virtual device Ethernet0 will start disconnected.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Ubuntu is installed as the host?

    You have a 64-bit CPU? You installed VMware Player 3.1.4?

    Do you have more than one NIC?

    In NAT I believe Player should be connected to eth0, and not vmnet8 or vmnet1.

    Wait--I got it! Upgrading to the newest version of Player fixed my problem. Just goes to show you, when in doubt, upgrade software.

    Thanks,
