VMWare Fusion Change vmnet1 IP address

You can change ip address using ifconfig command itself. You can use Terminal.

you will need permission to change the IP, use su
Shirajs-MacBook-Pro:~ shiraj$ su
Password:
sh-3.2#

To set IP address 192.168.200.1, enter command:
# ifconfig vmnet1 192.168.200.2 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
# ifconfig vmnet1

 

you can change the /Library/Application Support/VMWare Fusion/vmnet1/dhcpd.conf and have Fusion to statically assign this IP using the following settings:

subnet 192.168.200.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
range 192.168.200.100 192.168.200.254;
option broadcast-address 192.168.200.255;
option domain-name-servers 192.168.200.1;
option domain-name localdomain;
default-lease-time 1800;                # default is 30 minutes
max-lease-time 7200;                    # default is 2 hours
}

host vmnet1 {
hardware ethernet 00:50:56:C0:00:01;
fixed-address 192.168.200.1;
option domain-name-servers 0.0.0.0;
option domain-name “”;
