    I am installing vmware server on etch.

    when i change my interfaces file to the one in the how to the internet fails to work i also resolv. conf file to the one suggested in the the how to

    here is what my interaces files and resolv.conf look like


    # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
    # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

    # /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for ifup(8), ifdown(8)

    # The loopback interface
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    address 127.0.0.1
    netmask 255.0.0.0

    # The first network card - this entry was created during the Debian installation
    # (network, broadcast and gateway are optional)
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet dhcp
    network 192.168.0.0
    broadcast 192.168.0.255


    reslov.conf


    nameserver 62.30.112.39
    nameserver 194.117.134.19
    nameserver 62.30.0.39

    here is my ifconfig:

    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0F:B0:5C:AF:1F
    inet addr:77.101.58.22 Bcast:255.255.255.255 Mask:255.255.255.0

    Is this machine directly on the internet? If it is then remove

    network 192.168.0.0
    broadcast 192.168.0.255

    if not, then something is weird because you got this ip 77.101.58.22

    re etch and vmware server

    thanks for post and pm lando

    I did as suggested

    auto eth1
    iface eth1 inet static
    address 192.168.1.1
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    network 192.168.1.0
    broadcast 192.168.1.255

    but when restarting network this was the out put



    debian:/etc/network# /etc/init.d/networking restart
    Reconfiguring network interfaces...SIOCSIFADDR: No such device
    eth1: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
    SIOCSIFNETMASK: No such device
    SIOCSIFBRDADDR: No such device
    eth1: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
    eth1: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
    Failed to bring up eth1.
    done.

    so i changed eth1 to eth0
    and got this reply

    debian:/etc/network# /etc/init.d/networking restart
    Reconfiguring network interfaces...Ignoring unknown interface eth0=eth0.
    done.

    Why did you use eth1 when you only have eth0?

    You can install VMware Server using your original working /etc/network/interfaces file.

    Thanks for your post falko.

    I have used my original /etc/network/interfaces file

    On page 2 of the howto
    http://www.howtoforge.com/debian_etch_vmware_server_howto_p2

    it says:

    The VMware Management interface is now installed on your system.
    You will now be able to login the the VMware management interface with the URL:
    https://192.168.0.100:8333/
    To login use the username root and the password of your root system user

    what would be the url in my case?

    run ifconfig in the shell and there you'll see your ip.

    Use th ip you see there to connect to with the same port as the howto say's
