IPFire v2.3 VMware virtual machine
« on: November 20, 2008, 02:35:22 PM »
Hi all..
I've just donwloaded the last IPFire v2.3 ISO.
Does anyone know if it is possible to run IPFire on VMware Workstation 6.x?

VMnet0: bridged for the RED network ?
VMnet1: host-only for the GREEN network ?

Thanks in advance for your help!

This should work, but you may not acces your fire via green network and need to use red port acces to connect via ssh or anything else

red may work when nat is used too only pings don´t get reply´s

it may be beeter to use 2 bridged interfaces in order to run ipfire because everything should go from bridge1 -> green -> red -> bridge0

I am also facing same issue,

with basic configuration as given below my ipfire runs but my local system IP is using DHCP so i am not able to configure it on Green interface in VMworkstation

is it possible that i can make my local system use green network with single NIC on machine ?   :o :o



Regards

below are the steps that i followed


Goto    Open Network and sharing center
There will be Vmnet1 and Vmnet8 by Default both the Virtual interface will have IP’s you will need to edit Vmnet1 i.e. GREEN interface

Go to properties, select ipv4 tcp
And update the IP address as given below, Before that make changes to current IPFire Ethernet as below
VM  -  Settings – Select First N/W adapter Custom there select Vmnet8 NAT, in internet properties of system it will be automatically obtain IP address as this is your RED interface

Again follow below steps

VM  -  Settings – Select First N/W adapter 2 Custom there select VMnet1 Host only, save the settings and update below IPs in VMnet internet properties


Now, Choose Vmworkstation Host-Only Adapter > ipv4 > and set to:
-> ip address: 192.168.56.1
-> netmask 255.255.255.0
-> gateway 192.168.56.2
-> dns 192.168.56.2


what should i do if my locl system is IP range starts with 172.16.0.X  and its DHCP

plz help


thanks
