I have installed vmware server 2.0.2 on CentOS 6.2. I hit the issue Error opening the remote virtual machine 192.168.1.91:8333\32: A connection to the host could not be established when powering on a virtual machine and opening VMware Remote Console. (where 192.168.1.91 is the eth0 address of the host machine)
After some googling, I found a common solution is to either set up static IP or point to dns server to 127.0.0.1. But I'm not quite sure what it means.
Here is what I've tried.
127.0.0.1 192.168.1.91to my
- change domain-name-server in
/etc/vmware/vmnet1/dhcpd/dhcpd.confto 127.0.0.1 (so I use Host-Only for my virtual machine)
nameserver 127.0.0.1to my
None of the above works.
I've spent hours of time on the issue and really want to get it over with.
Please clarify it for me . Thanks.
