I imagine I am missing something really simple here, but I am trying to configure some VM's on VMware Workstation 7 to get their DHCP address from a router in GNS3.

I am hoping to link up as follows

VM --> [CLOUD] --> ROUTER (RUNNING DHCP)

I have tried creating a tap interface and bridging the VM with that from within vmware, then connecting the tap to the cloud, but that isn't working. I don't want to use VMware's DHCP so I am not using the built in "host only" adapters.

Thanks for the help

found a work around. I have the VM use a "host only" network w/o DHCP. I create a cloud that uses this vm interface (vmnet3 etc.). Then I use Linux ifconfig cmd to change the vmnet interface to an IP on the same net as the DHCP as the router. VM will then get an IP from the router.

I am not using a class C network for DHCP that is why I couldnt leave the "host only" NIC on the preconfigured vmware network.
