Hey everybody, I'm not that familiar with vmware but I know how to set up bridged networks on my machine and all the basics. First, if i have one of the connections assigned as NAT the network connection is showed as Unidentified Network in the Network and Sharing Center through the Control Panel on my Windows Vista machine. SO when i set up lets say VMnet0 (in Virtual Network Editor) to a bridged connection and I change it from automated bridge to NVIDIA nForce 10/100 Mbps Ethernet (my ethernet adapter) and select apply it doesn't show up with the NAT connection in control panel.
So, I can't seem to bridge my Local network with the bridged connection set up with the Virtual Network Editor because it's not there to bridge. I've tried to do the same procedure with the NAT connection and then changing it to bridged after i have bridged those to connections together in control Panel. Restarted the computer and everything, reset the Comcast high Speed Internet modem but it still show that the network/connection was unidentified and of course showed limited connectivity.
I don't have any firewalls set up at the moment no router, my AV is Avira and i have Spyware Doctor running. I've also tried the same thing while my AV and the doctor wasn't running but no success.
P.S. If you want to know why I am trying to bridge them together, is so I can connect to an ssh set up service on a linux virtual machine so i can connect to it remotely.
If you guys need any more information in case I have missed something please tell me and I will provide it. Also if i have posted it in the wrong section, I'm sorry.
Thank you, r0y4lty.
