Subj:   Re: Connection errors from host to TD Express 13.10 VMWare
From:   Dave Wellman


From the end of your post it looks like you can't even ping the vm from your host. Please confirm whether you can or cannot. If you can't then it's a networking issue (which I think it is).

I think you'll need to use the "vmnetcfg" program which should be installed in the VMPlayer folder in Program Files. If this isn't installed try downloading it from the VMWare web site.

First, find out what ip address is assigned to your vm when it starts.

One of the entries on the vmnetcfg screen has an "external connection" type of NAT and DHCP enabled. On mine it is VMNET8.

Highlight the network identified above (e.g. VMNET8) and click the "DHCP Settings" button. This will give you the range of IP addresses assigned to guests. You'll probably find that the ip address of your vm is the first value in this range. Close the DHCP settings screen.

Click the "NAT settings" button.

On the "Nat settings" screen click the ADD button.

On the "map incoming port" screen

- Host Port is 1025

- virtual machine address is the ip of the vm

- virtual machine port is 1025

- select TCP

- add a description if you want

Click "OK/Yes/Confirm" as many times as necessary :-)

Close the vmnetcfg program and saee what happens. You may have to reboot various things. Try ping first and then try an application. In your odbc dsn or whatever program etc try connecting by ip address first. If that works then you can try hosts file etc.

Let me know what happens.
