I use VM Player to run an instance of the WebLogic and Vignette so I can do my testing. this works fine until I VPN in to work. Fortunately, I came across this posting on how to configure the VM Player to play nice with VPN. Change the DHCP IP Address Range for VMware NAT :: the How-To Geek There were a couple of gotchas: 1 - The network manager is not in Start -> Programs -> VMWare section of the program manager. Instead, it will be in the same directory as the VMPlayer which on my box with a standard install is "C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Player\vmnetcfg.exe". I added a shortcut so I could find it later. 2. Once connected with VPN, do ipconfig /all and look for one with a description matching the VPN client. Using Nortel on my box the description is: Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Nortel IPSECSHM Adapter - Packet Scheduler Miniport Use subnet corresponding to the matching IP address as described in the posting.
