It's WORKING, sort of.
I have no experience with VMWare player up until yesterday. I normally use
VirtualBox for VMs.
This morning I downloaded a VM appliance from VMWare that contains CentOS
and Firefox and noticed its VMWare setting for Network Adapter was "NAT".
It worked great -- could access the internet with no problem.
The Network Adapter setting on the djigzo VM was "Bridged", not NAT. This
is contrary to my experience with VirtualBox where I would always use the
So the problem was with the Network Adapter setting.
The problem NOW is that I can only access the djigzo from the VM's host
computer. In the NAT mode, djigzo was assigned 192.168.153.129 and my
network is 192.168.168.xxx.
Perhaps I will just scrap the VM idea and install djigzo on its own Linux
VMware player is not really suited for server based applications. If you
want to use the Virtual Appliance it's better to use the ESX or Hyper-V
version. Or, install it on a dedicated Linux box.
That said, it's possible to use VirtualBox with the Virtual Appliance
for VMware player. See Appendix A of the Djigzo Virtual Appliance guide.
I have copied the relevant section:
1) Open the Virtual Media Manager (File -> Virtual Media Manager) and
press Add to add an existing medium.
2) Select a hard disk image file. Select the Virtual Appliance .vmdk
file and close the dialog.
3) Create a new Virtual Machine. Use Operating system Linux and version
4) Set base memory >= 640 MB.
5) Select the .vmdk hard disk created in step 2.
6) Make sure the network is set to: Attached to: Host Interface.
7) Enable the advanced option PAE/NX.
You can now start-up the Virtual Appliance.
