Thanks to Scott Russell email@example.com for this little "trick"
One of the bummers about VMWare is if you are on a Token-Ring adapter, your VMWare system can't have a real TCP/IP address. Turns out this isn't the case. Here's how to do it.
In the info below we'll call your linux box 'linux.mycompany.biz.com'
Register another ip address, I'll call it 'vmware.mycompany.biz.com'
Make sure FORWARD_IPV4=true in your /etc/sysconfig/network file. If you have to change it you can dynamically turn on the feature as root
cat 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
Alias the second ip to the TR adapter. You end up with something like this from /sbin/ifconfig:
tr0 linux.mycompany.biz.com tr0:0 vmware.mycompany.biz.com vmnet1 192.168.0.1
Make sure you can ping both ip addresses from another box. If you cannot then this next step will not work.
Use ipchains/iptables to redirect incoming traffic for the tr0:0 interface to your vmnet1 interface. (When I did this I only redirected specific ports from tr0:0 to vmnet1.)
Now any outside system your 'NT' box appears to be on the TR. In bound traffic can find it as well as out.
