      Hello,
                  I Have BT5 R3 running on VMWare workstation 7. Recently copied the cloned BT5-R3 on my new  Dell xps notebook, The network adapter is set to Bridged mode,The ‘Replicate Physical network state’ is checked. when i type ifconfig on my backtrack terminal it shows inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0, can anyone please suggest me how to fix this ?

      Regards
      Skorpinok.

      I’ll usually run with NAT so you could check that.

      However regarding your problem: is your network up while testing? As you have “replicate network state” it is easy to unplug your laptop and forgot that this breaks your VM networking as well.

      Other things to check:
      – what adapters you see with ifconfig?

      Even with NAT its same,

      Do you see your NIC if you do an ifconfig -a?

      Maybe you just need a ifconfig eth0 up or service networking start.

      You can also do a dmesg | grep eth to see interfaces detected during startup.

      Thank you  ajohnson & sh4d0wmanPP , Problem resolved, after hours of checking, the main culprit was this new  macafee antivirus, that came pre installed with my new dell xps, its home network settings would not allow network adapters to vm’s. so i uninstalled it & reinstalled with norton antivirus 2012. fired up backtrack. an ifconfig shows.

      Glad you got the problem sorted. I note you now have eth2, if this is a problem for you, refer to my previous post which explains how you can get eth0 back.
