Hi I'm trying to install Centos and Snort on a virtual machine and is there anyway I can bind the promiscuous virtual network adapter to a specific physical network interface on the server? I'm using VMWare workstation 7.1.4.

If I recall correctly VM Virtual Box can do that if you set the Virtual Network Adapter to Bridged. However I can't seem to find that option in VMware Workstation.

Thanks in advance.

workstation and server doesn't belong in the same question on this site – pauska Sep 16 '11 at 8:24

You can run Virtual Network Editor to build a special virtual interface that you can bridge your VM to.
