I have a Sharepoint website that runs on IIS inside VMware Workstation guest system.
The host is Windows 7, whereas guest is Windows Server 2003.
What I basically need is just to be able to browse the website from the host OS.
I guess this has something to do with setting up NAT and port forwarding but I can’t figure how to make it work. I tried setting Network Adapter in VM settings to NAT option but had no luck whatsoever.
There’s also a different kind of problem here: my VM computer name is used by another computer in our network. I cannot change it because it would ruin Sharepoint configuration (already tried), and reconfiguring Sharepoint is something I want the least.
You should be able to set up VMWare to bridge the network connection so your virtual machine appears as any other machine on the network. Configure it for DHCP or static IP, browse to the (virtual) machine, and you should have access.
