Thread: VMware or other virtualization

  1. #1

    Default VMware or other virtualization

    I have VirtualBox installed so I can run Windows so I can test web sites in IE, but I don't see a way to allow my VB IE to connect to my suse localhost server to test my work locally.

    On VMWare I think such networking is possible, but I need detailed instructions how to install VMWare on suse 11--I don't know how to compile anything, so I need to know what the commands are.

    Other option is if someone has a better idea for how to do this? I heard qemu is not so good, but maybe it is and maybe it can do this type of networking. I tried ies4linux but b/c I have a GeForce Nvidia graphics card, there is a known bug in Wine that makes ies4linux eat up the entire CPU, rendering it somewhat useless.

    Thanks!

    * FredTheJonester,

    there's that "manual" thing available on the VMWare site.
    In short, download the rpm, install it (Yast, zypper, rpm, whatever), open a console, become root, run vmware-config.pl

    If you are using the default NAT setup, then you can reach the host's services at 10.0.2.2 (the VM gets 10.0.2.15), firewall rules permitting. With bridging you can reach the real IP address of the host.

    Absolutely brilliant. That's exactly what I wanted.

    Thank you!
