VMWare install on Ubuntu problem with the IP

    I followed step by step the how-to for installing VMWare on Ubuntu. Everything went fine but there is a problem with the https://192.168.0.100:8333

    Ofcourse my IP was 192.168.192.200 when I installed the VMWare and now I type https://192.168.192.200:8333 but it can't find anything.
    From the command-line I typed vmware and the VMWare Server Consoled appeared and seems to work fine.

    In the ifconfig's output I see vmnet1 192.168.78.1 and 172.16.246.1 . I tried these IPs but nothing.

    How can I solve the IP problem?

    Port 8333 is not in use, so the VMware management interface isn't started. What's the output of
    Code:
    ls -l /etc/init.d
    ?

    You can see the vmware and httpd.vmware

    I typed
    $sudo /etc/init.d/httpd.vmware status
    vmware.httpd is not running.
    $ sudo /etc/init.d/httpd.vmware start
    Starting httpd.vmware: done
    $ sudo /etc/init.d/httpd.vmware status
    vmware.httpd is not running.

    Ofcourse sudo vmware starts vmware with no problem (for now)
    But if I run netstat -tap I get the same output as before.
    As in the guide I ran the second script for VMWare MUI. I can see the /usr/lib/vmware-mui

    Is there anything in your logs when this happens?

    I don't know in which log to search. Could you suggest ?

    The logs are normally in the /var/log directory.

    There are the /var/log/vmware and /var/log/vmware-mui directories.

    Yesterday after the kernel update (2.6.15-27) , I rerun the config scripts to recompile the modules and it run!
    Today I have the same problem as before. In /var/log/vmware-mui/error_log I see the following -- that's the log for
    sudo /etc/init.d/httpd.vmware start and
    sudo /etc/init.d/httpd.vmware status

    When the httpd.vmware run I had created a directory, the /var/run/vmware/httpd because somewhere in the log files there was a "there is no such file or directory"

    The problem is that somehow this directory is erased .
    The solution is

    edit the /etc/init.d/httpd.vmware and immediately after "start)"
    add the following code:

    if [ ! -d /var/run/vmware/httpd ]
    then
    mkdir /var/run/vmware/httpd
    chown www-data:nogroup /var/run/vmware/httpd
    chmod 700 /var/run/vmware/httpd
    fi
