I am running Postgres and Bloomberg in a VM WARE Windows XP Virtual machine on a Snow Leopard Mac (bberg is sadly windows only). Here is the IP Config of the virtual machine:
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection: Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : localdomain IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 172.16.179.130 Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 172.16.179.2
Unfortunately ping in a terminal on the same mac (outside the virtual machine of course) doesn't see that IP address:
users-imac:~ thomasbrowne$ ping 172.16.179.130 PING 172.16.179.130 (172.16.179.130): 56 data bytes Request timeout for icmp_seq 0 Request timeout for icmp_seq 1 Request timeout for icmp_seq 2 Request timeout for icmp_seq 3
Therefore I cannot access the Postgres database from outside the virtual machine. I am running "Share this mac's network connection (NAT)" as the network option for the virtual machine, and the Mac is hooked to the network via wifi, where it gets a dynamic IP address. Anything I should be doing? Thanks in advance for the help.
