Dear Jay,

Actually, I am running FreeBSD Unix on a VMWare machine (Host OS: Win2003, Guest OS: FreeBSD).

Any ideas how I can disable / ignore the routing from the VMnet8? Below are the only VMWare NAT configuration that I have access to. No DHCP enable / disable option.


Ethernet adapter VMware Network Adapter VMnet8:

   Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :
   IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.52.1
   Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
   Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.52.2


When I install FreeBSD, I remember I did select some option to enable DHCP. Perhaps, I should disable the DHCP service in FreeBSD(Guest OS) - if so, any idea how do I do it?

Thanks :)

Regards,

Simple enough, then. Edit /etc/rc.conf, and remove the line relating to the dhcp client. Then add:
defaultrouter="192.168.51.2"
hostname="boxname!"
ifconfig_em0="inet 192.168.52.WHATEVERYOUWANT  netmask 255.255.255.0"
