I'm using VMWare Fusion 6 as a virtual machine to run Windows 7 parallel with Mac OS-X in my Macbook Pro, with a licensed copy of Windows 7. In the Windows-running virtual machine, I'm using a network analysis tool called Cain & Abel (I'm the owner of a small school, and in my previous Windows computer I used Cain & Abel to monitor my students' network activity; for further information visit www.oxid.it/cain.html
). However, when I sniff the network and search for the computers connected to it (I've already configured Cain to work with my WiFi network adapter, running it in administrator mode), I cannot see any computer in the network (other than "VmWare corporation"); I'm not able to see the usual "Microsoft Corporation" and "Apple Inc." computers connected to the same network.
Whenever I bring a Windows computer to my school, I'm able to sniff the whole network using Cain and I can see my students' IP connected to the school's LAN. This problem is related to VMWare Fusion configuration on my Mac. Can somebody help me out?
