OK, I'm new to Linux, but I downloaded the VubuntuS VM and it will not connect to the Internet. I'm running Windows Vista with VMware Server 1.0.2. Any ideas?

Thank you for your time,

christoria

the files which impact your network and internet connectivity would be:

/etc/resolv.conf
where you would specify your dns server and domain if any:
example:
Code:

nameserver 212.55.212.55
domain howtoforums.net
search howtoforums.net


and
/etc/network/interfaces
the network card address,
example:
Code:

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
                   address 192.168.1.155
                   netmask 255.255.255.0
                   broadcast 192.168.1.255
                   gateway 192.168.1.1


once both are changed, restart the network settings by:
Code:

/etc/init.d/networking restart


* all changes above must be done as root or using sudo

thanks for your interest,
Jacob
