What you read about unsupported bridging is related to this. The vmware3 port supports bridging, but you can't use the 'Connection Type Bridged' in the virtual machine setup. However, bridging is supported via 'Connection Type Custom' and 'Vmnet /dev/vmnet1'. This is maybe a little confusing, if you are new to VMware on FreeBSD. - -- Christian Hiris <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> | OpenPGP KeyID 0x3BCA53BE OpenPGP-Key at hkp://wwwkeys.eu.pgp.net and http://pgp.mit.edu -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.2.6 (FreeBSD) iD8DBQFBaqCT09WjGjvKU74RAv5QAJ989h9mdPUS+Q7pm4JVyl9ZQrwVJACfejiu davJVxTq/1jv96agSHN4xxQ= =yOPP -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
