First off, what distro are you on? When you mean you cannot connect to the webpage do you mean the web access from the physical machine or do you mean web access from another machine in the network?

I had to allow some things through the firewall on OpenSuSE 11.0 64-bit but after that I have had no problems.

You mean to the internet or the Max PC Website?

So many questions... so little answers

Windows Xp sp3
in vmware 2.0 you are suppose to be able to click the vmware icon to
start vmware. I can even get that starting vmware page to load.

No, I meant the box .. 'cause my next instruction is to read the manual.

Normally, I'd punt this to the Free Clinic, since it is a software problem in a Windows install, but I assume you are trying to run linux in a vm?

Windows xp host and linux guest

I thought since I would be dealing with multiple OSes this would be the place to post. I guess I was wrong.

Ok I am ready. MOVE me I can take it!!!!

As long as your using it with Linux, you're fine.

Yeah, I'm leaving it here because the subject does involve multiple OSes and he is most likely to get a response here.

So .. WinXP is hosting a VMware Server 2.0 install of an unspecified Linux distro.

We need more information. At what point does the system fail?

eh...my only thought is he's unable to use the GUI management console.

Perhaps actually running the config script successfully would be in order.

or at least put those typing lessons to use.

and I think your original assessment was right and this belongs in the free clinic as it's a windows app in windows.

I can't really make an accurate assessment until we figure out which part of the process isn't working.

If he can't install VMware properly, it is Windows. If VMWare is working properly and he can't get linux running .. then it could be either but I'd keep it here.

3rd Degree, I had nothing but problems with VMWare 2.0. I couldn't get it to do a single thing. I say uninstall and use VMWare Server 1.0 or Sun's VirtualBox. They're both stupid easy to use. I hate to recommend something other than what you're using, but myself, along with others who know what they're doing with VMWare products, couldn't get far with Vmware Server 2.
