    About 2nd NIC


    Hi folks,


    Host OS - Ubuntu 7.04 lamp server amd64
    VMWare license.vs.1.0-00
    Guest OS to be installed - OpenBSD, Slack


    Ubuntu is now running on this server and undergoing fine-tuning

    /etc/network/interfaces
    Code:
    # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
    # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
    
    # The loopback network interface
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    
    # The primary network interface
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet static
            address 192.168.0.10
            netmask 255.255.255.0
            gateway 192.168.0.1

    Do I need adding a 2nd NIC?

    If YES what shall I add on;
    /etc/network/interfaces
    Code:
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    
    # The management network interface
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet static
            address 192.168.0.10
            netmask 255.255.255.0
            gateway 192.168.0.1
    
    
    # The VMs network interface
    auto eth1
    iface eth1 inet static
            address ???
            netmask 255.255.255.0
            gateway 192.168.0.1
    If NO, can Guest OSs share the NIC/broadband with the Host OS? TIA

    Hey,
    No need for second NIC Lan Card. You can communicate with Vmwares Virtual NIC between Host OS and Guest OS. Just enable your network bridge option under VMware settings. Give diffrent ips but under same network for Host and Guest Os. If any problem revert back.
    Regards,

    date; cd~; unzip; touch;
    strip; finger; mount; gasp;
    yes; uptime; umount;
    sleep
