10.5: Virtualize machine-specific 10.4 in Fusion 2
Authored by: Sven G on Nov 04, '08 11:25:49AM

On my experimental Tiger VM (the one described in the hint), NAT networking works flawlessly, while bridged mode doesn't connect (at least the first time I booted): it looks similar to a problem I had in Ubuntu with bridged networking, where I had to edit /etc/sysctl.conf, adding these lines:

net.ipv4.tcp_syncookies = 1
net.ipv4.tcp_window_scaling = 0
net.ipv4.tcp_ecn = 0

(effective after rebooting). This because my router didn't work well with the default settings: but how would one do this in Mac OS X? Is there an easy way? That's the problem...

Both NAT and Bridged appear to work fine after a reboot of the host. Pshaw! I rebooted after reinstalling VMWare so I didn't think to do it again.

Same here: both NAT and bridged mode now work in my experimental Tiger VM, too - at least, this problem is solved! ;-) :-)

BTW, returning to the hint, even if the are no Tiger-compatible VMware Tools, there is a minimal mouse integration (à la Screen Sharing); but, sadly, there's no time synchronization between host and guest.

To the previous posters: are you sure you made a 64-bit VM? Personally, I had hangs at boot when I tried to make ordinary, non-64-bit Mac OS X VMs. But probably this is not the problem...

Another question: do there exist retail or other generic Tiger/Intel DVDs? I thought that they were all machine-specific (even if this can be modified with a simple hack by modifying an invisible file, if I'm not mistaken: maybe there was even a hint on this, here, some time ago), and thus can install only on the computer they came with.
