VMware – external DHCP server

25 Apr

I couldn’t get my Rails appliance to recognise the DHCP server on my LAN.

I thought it was due to incorrect network settings in Host->Virtual Network Settings.

Turns out it was bridging but I was looking in the wrong place. Right click on the server name then right-click->Settings->Ethernet and make sure the “Bridged” option is selected.
