Can't Connect To Internet With 2nd Instance Of VMPlayer

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have recently joined the folding scene, I am using 2 instances of VMPlayer, the first instance runs fine with Ubuntu installed and can connect to the internet and is folding nicely, completing a 50MB WU in 16 hours.

I have read and been told to run a second instance of VMplayer with another ubuntu to max out my quad core. It installs fine, but can't configure it to access the internet. I am really stuck and know nothing of Linux, can someone help me please?

Try switching your Network from Bridged to NAT on the 2nd virtual server. Inside of VMware, with the 2nd server running, click on VM>Options or Settings(cant remember which)>then highlight the Network setting and change to NAT. Then restart the server. I believe thats correct.
