I have a realtek 8139 family, which seems to be pretty common, as my laptop has this too. Works beautifully!

I'm not quite sure how to bind the second port of the virual serial port pair to the virtual machine.

I see that it's possible to enable one or two serial ports using the Phoenix bios setup screens. You can access the bios setup screens screen by pressing F2 during the initial startup of the virtual machine. As shown in the attached screenshot, there are four available addresses for the serial ports:
3F8 IRQ4
2F8 IRQ3
3E8 IRQ4
2E8 IRQ3

Attached File  PhoenixBiosSerialPortSettings.png   24.65KB   804 downloads

I have tried all of these and I still cannot get a reply from WinXP when the terminal window opens in OSX's Internet Connect utility.

Saturn49, can you offer any clarification on how to set up the serial ports in the virtual machine so that one of the VM's serial ports is bound to one of the virtual pair in WinXP?

Thanks in advance.
-M.

VMWare works with a serial port / PPP connection.  I used a demo of Virtual Serial Port Driver XP v5 to create a pair of serial ports.  I bound one of them to Incoming Connections, no flow control, 115200.  Allow directly connected users to connect without a password, give it a pair of IP addresses under TCP/IP config.

The other serial port I bound to the Virtual Machine.  Within OSX select the Null Modem at 115200 as your modem, unselect compression and wait for dial tone.  Under PPP Options, select use terminal window.  Click Connect.  When the terminal window appears, type in CLIENTCLIENT and hit enter (you won't see anything in the window as you type).  The XP side should respond with CLIENTSERVER.  Click connect.  If all goes well you'll be connected via PPP.

Those of you using Native mode can probably do the same thing with a null modem cable.

There's some hacks you can do to your mdmhayes.inf to prevent needing to type in CLIENTCLIENT manually:

We do the same trick for directly connected TiVos, should work fine here too.

I have a ASUS A8V Deluxe mobo with built-in Marvell 88E8001 ethernet. Doesn't work. It would be nice for someone to make a kext for the Marvell cards, because one kext would work with many of the recent ASUS mobos, which use Marvell ethernet adapters.

I remeber getting that same error thesleeper. I believe it was because I followed the instructions for the developer version of tulip, which involved a bunch of makefile commands and overwrote the kext. Then when I went to install it, there was nothing to install. So make sure you follow the proper instructions in the readme. B)

I haven't been able to try stuff out yet, but RaLink has Mac 10.4/Linux drivers for the Belkin F5D7010 PC card. I've been using their XP drivers instead of the Belkin ones. The wireless card is based on the RT2500 chip series, RT2560 to be exact.

In the VM's hardware configuration you need to add a serial port. When you do, tell it to bind to a physical serial port and select one of the two virtual serial ports you created. This first serial port will be COM1 (3F8 IRQ4) inside the VM.

Ok, found it. I looked and looked but didn't find the "Add" button in VMware's VM hardware settings screen until I read your reply. I'll test it later and report the result here. Thanks.

Alright, I got the PPP part of the connection up and running. One other stumbling block was that every time I changed the BIOS serial port settings, I had to configure a new connection in the Internet pane of System Preferences. It seems that each different address is treated as a unique connection. One of these days, I'll boot up OSX with only one serial port active, and then reboot with the next one active, and so on until I've identified each of the 4 addresses. Each time, I'll name the serial port connection in System Preferences after the address that is active in the BIOS. This will make it easier to tell which is which.

Thanks again.

I had tried:

CNet PRO200WL PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter
D-Link DFE-530TX
Realtek 8139B

with no luck. Then i noticed my cable modem had a usb connection...

I tried it, and it immediately detected the usb connection as built in ethernet..

So nice!

My integrated gigabit NIC doesn't work. It's a part of the nForce3 250Gb chipset, and I tried following this guide, but it didn't work anyway :)
