Just wanted to throw this up before I forget it. If you’re using vmware on an OS X machine with a Windows Client and need to connect to the host (OS X) computer you can find the IP by:
Open up the command line tool in Windows.
Type ‘ipconfig’ to see the network info.
In there you’ll see the ‘gateway’ IP address. That’s the address you use to connect to whatever on your OS X host =)
Not that I need to post all these details for myself, but it might be useful for someone else. I couldn’t find it anywhere in my Google searches.
