Haha! Got it working. However the guide was only helpful to a certain extent.

For debian, the guide stated this:
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address # the VM's address
netmask 255.255.255.255
post-up /sbin/ip route add "Dedicated.Server.IP.but.end.in.254" dev eth0 #The gateway of the server
post-up /sbin/ip route add default via "Dedicated.Server.IP.but.end.in.254"

I used the same in Windows, but the gateway was my server's IP, not Server IP with 254 at the end, wouldn't work otherwise.

Oh well

Tried and failed.

Also in VMWare 2, there's no routes.conf

(Also /etc/wmware/routes.conf is spelt wrong in the tutorial)

Hi all,

I'm attempting once again to install a VM on my dedi. I've done it before and got networking working fine last time, but this time I'm getting a real headache.

VMware Server 2 is working just about fine, no issues with the VM itself, Windows Server is working. I just can't get the networking to work. Looking through the forums isn't helping.

Any help or suggestions? I'm going to start blank, i've removed everything I've tried to configure this thing.

Currently in Host-Only networking (NAT and bridging is disabled).*
