If your physical NIC does not show up in the list then you have a
problem with the NIC driver or you are using a wireless NIC on your
First attempt at solving this:
- Open the properties of your NIC (on the host)
- Make sure that the "Virtual Machine Network Services" item is
checked in the list. If it is not then:
- Check it and OK out.
- Now stop and start VPC2007
- Go to the guest properties again and see if the NIC has appeared
in the list. If so select it and start the guest.
- Chances are that the networking will now begin to work as you
- If the above does not work then you need to locate a newer driver
for your network card on the host. Your NIC driver probably does not
cooperate with the VMNS services in the present version....
Local only will not give you any connectivity at all! It is meant to
be used for *isolated* guest networks where the intention is that the
guests will *not* be visible to any other computers than the virtual
ones, including being invisible from the host.
