vmware player network configuration

Vmware player 3.0.1 is a surprisingly capable and free virtualization environment. "Player" in the name is a bit misleading as many of the restrictions in earlier versions have been lifted.

However, network configuration tool is not installed by default and needs to be manually extracted.

Richard at f5 devcentral
provides the details:

  • You can install it manually by extracting it from the install file.
  • VMware-player-3.0.1-227600.exe /e .\vmwareextract
  • Open network.cab and copy vmnetcfg.exe to the root of your player install. You now have a nice graphical editor for your virtual network.
