    Hi,

    I guess you are using DHCP to get you IP in Linux.

    If so try this. The info is off the Vmware site.

    become root (su -) and use a text editor to edit the following files in the guest OS

    /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth(n)
    /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth(n)

    also if it exists edit :
    /etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/ifcfg-eth(n)

    in all cased (n) is the number of the Ethernet adapter - for example eth0

    In each of the files add the following

    check_link_down () {
    return 1;
    }

    save the files and the do - ifup eth(n) or restart.

    Let me know if this works. Worked for me..

    Info was got from KB 977. Go to www.vmware.com. Click on support and the KB.. Also try the news.vmware.com for help.
