    Win7 IP address goofy in VM ware
    I have identical copies of Windows 7 Ultimate running on a PC and in VM Fusion (3.1.1) on my MacBook Pro (10.6.4). They are connected via an Airport Extreme (IP address 10.0.1.1).

    I wasn't having any luck networking them so I checked the IP addresses on both. The PC was 10.0.1.2 and the MBP was 10.0.1.3 (makes sense). However, interestingly enough, the IP address of the VM Ware instance of Win7 was 192.168.168.136.

    Any clues why they are so different and any ideas how to get them back on the same subnet so they can talk? I suspect I can just force Win to a static address but I hate forcing things...and I'm not sure exactly how...

    Thanks

    What type of networking are you running in VMWare? There is something like 3 ways to run. There is bridged(or NAT), shared, and host only. (There may be one or two more) Anyway what you have for an IP - it looks like you are running bridged. This means that there is a private network running between the Mac and the Virtual Machine. If you want it to have a 10.0.1.255 subnet mask then you should try shared.
