  • Vista .... wrong IP

    Hello,

    At home, I have a router, Linksys WRT54GL configured as "Automatic DHCP" and Starting IP Address at 192.168.1.100.

    On my computer I have Vista Ultimate and VMware Worstation 6.1 where I installed Windows XP.

    On the virtual Machine, I have a right IP : 192.168.1.102 this machine is called "MachineA-vmware"

    On Vista (the host) I have this IP : 192.168.192.1 this machine is called "MachineA".

    Of course, XP (virtual) when I do a ping or tracert don't see the host and Vice-versa.

    Do you have an idea why a "wrong" IP is give to the Vista computer ? In theory should by in 192.168.1.x

    Regards,

    Re: Vista .... wrong IP

    Look at the NIC's properties, see if no alternate IP address was configured. Next, do an IPCONFIG /ALL and see where you got this IP from (what was the IP of the DHCP).

      No alternate IP configured

      I copy/paste the ipconfig /all

      I'm connected in Wifi

        Did you do an ipconfig/all on the virtual machine because your VMWare virtual adapters have ip addresses that are not in the 192.168.1.x range. What type of VMWare network setting are you using; Host only, NAT, etc? I believe that you need to change the address range of whichever VMWare adapter is being used by the virtual machine to a 192.168.1.x range or change your virtual machine to use DHCP, which will then get the correct address from the VMWare virtual adapter on the host.

          hum hum me my job it's programming and not the network it's for this reason I ask

          This ipconfig, is not from the virtual machine but from the host on Vista. I'm connected in wifi to a router (WRT54GL) configured as DHCP and starting ip at 192.168.1.100 The ip on the virtual look ok but the Vista not and I don't understand why. I'd like have both (virtual and Vista) in the same range to see each others. And, I think the problem is the ip attributed to VISTA

            Your IP address is 192.168.1.103 - which is correct. The address you're talking about is on the VMWare adapter and you can check this by checking the configuration of the VMWare adapter in the Network control panel.

              Well why when I do a ping from Scully to Scully, I have this :

              C:\Users\Chris>ping scully
              Pinging SCULLY [192.168.192.1] with 32 bytes of data:

              Reply from 192.168.192.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128

              C:\Users\Chris>tracert scully
              Tracing route to SCULLY [192.168.192.1]
              over a maximum of 30 hops:
              1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms SCULLY [192.168.192.1]

              Trace complete.

              and when I do this :
              C:\Users\Chris>tracert 192.168.1.103
              Tracing route to SCULLY.TVCablenet.be [192.168.1.103]
              over a maximum of 30 hops:
              1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms SCULLY.TVCablenet.be [192.168.1.103]

              I'm lost ....

                because "scully" is the DNS name of the vmware adapter (which has no DNS Suffix) and "scully.tvcablenet.be" is a DIFFERENT DNS NAME and applies to your wireless adapter.

                You need to get your head around this stuff to get VM's talking properly to their hosts... can you post the IPCONFIG /ALL from the VM?

                  The ip addresses on your VMWare virtual adapters (on the host) are using different ip address ranges than your "real" network. Even if you statically assign an ip address on the virtual machine that matches your "real" network, you will not be able to communicate unless you either change the ip address range for VMNet1 or VMNet8 to match your "real" network or change the virtual machine to use bridging.

                    The host computer name is "SCULLY" the vmware is "SCULLY-VMWARE"

                    192.168.1.102 look good
