    Yes I did.

    I think I mighta fixed it.

    I set a host only adapter and instead of using the hostname of the Host, I used it's IP on VMNET1 (Host Only adapter) so it will always use that one...

    I just need a way to use this command without having to enter my password in the terminal where someone can see it...:
    Code:
    mount -t cifs -o username=<user>,password=<pass> //computer/share /path/to/mountpoint
