I use VMware server on my computers at home. Both of my current systems run Fedora 8, kernel 188.8.131.52-27. I say this because on my laptop I couldn’t configure a VM to use bridged network mode when wlan0 was the only active interface.
After a lot of googling, I came across this post. The post is almost entirely in german, however there is an abbreviated version somewhere in the middle in english.
Normally, I wouldn’t go any further than posting a link, however while I was reviewing some links on my del.icio.us account, I clicked the above, and discovered that the site has a tremendous number of errors. This is bad. It usually means that the site is not well maintained and not long for the internet.
Additionally, the patch that’s posted is slightly out of date. So, I’ve created an updated patch, and I’m going to post some instructions in english here.
