  • Vmware teams and LAN

    This should be an easy question, but I can't find the answer anywhere.

    I am setting up a computer security lab and I don't want anything to escape. While creating a team, VMWare put everything on a LAN, and it sound like what I am looking for. But how to I connect to any hosts on the LAN? My target is running a webserver, and other services, and I am suppose to discover what they are and break in.

    How do I connect with the webserver? In the IP world I would use the IP, of course, but what about LANs? I am lost.

    TIA

    Lock the door when you leave. Ensure there are no gaps around it, which are big enough for the aforementioned "things" to get through.

    LANs ARE in the IP world... because every host in a LAN has an IP Address (unless of course you're using the NetBEUI or IPX Protocols, in which case I take it back).

    Just open a command prompt on the machines you want to connect to, and type "IPCONFIG". It will give you the machine's IP address - with which you can try to connect to it.

      I don't see an IP for eth0. I can not connect to any other host on this lan either.

        That does not look like the IPCONFIG output of a Windows box... what OS is your guest running?

            Then, you either need to:

            1. Configure the Guests with a manual IP address, Subnet Mask and Gateway each, all on the same network:

            or

            2. Configure all the Guests as DHCP Clients, and provide a DHCP server on the same LAN as them... whether virtual or physical.

            It sounds like you need to do some research about 1. Networking in general, and 2. how it works in a virtual environment... before you begin using your lab properly.

              I have been using host, bridged, etc for awhile now. However when I tried LAN, and got that ifconfig output, I was rather confused on what to do. I have been looking for all the VMware LAN, team information I could find and could not find the answer I was seeking.

              Thanks for the advice.
