To configure a VM's connection to a CloudShare network:
In the environment's details page, select Edit Environment > Edit Networks.
The Edit Networks page appears.
On the topology diagram, select the VM you want to configure.
If the VM is not already connected to the network, click Add Adapter to add a new net adapter.
Click the More Details link on the net adapter to modify the settings:
Select the target network for the adapter.
Choose how the net adapter can be accessed from the internet:
Secure Access. Inbound access available via CloudShare's environment viewer only.
Public IP. The machine is exposed to the internet with a unique public IP.
No Access. The machine cannot be accessed via RDP and SSH in the Environment Viewer nor by direct RDP/SSH access. It will be available in the Environment Viewer via the Console interface only.
The IP address assigned to the net adapter. This IP must be on the network's subnet. The same IP address must also be configured as the net adapter's static IP in the VM's OS.
Select the type of net adapter:
VMXNET3 (Recommended). Select this type for best performance. It requires VMWare Tools.
E1000. Select this type only if VMWare Tools isn't running on the VM.
Click Save Changes.
Connect to the VM to configure the adapter in the VM's OS as well. Note the following:
The adapter's IP address must be a static IP and must be the same as you set in the Internal IP field in the Edit Networks page.
If you want to ensure remote connectivity via the CloudShare Gateway: The adapter's default gateway must either be the IP you assigned to the CloudShare remote access gateway for the network (in the CloudShare Gateway IP field for the network, on the Edit Networks page) or another IP in the subnet. At least one of the VMs in the network should have the CloudShare Gateway IP value set as its default gateway.
How to connect to the VM: Even if the VM is not connected to a network or some configuration mismatch has rendered the network unusable, you can connect to it over the console interface. To do that:
In the Environment Details page, find the VM in the VMs list.
Hover over the arrow at the right of the View button and select View in Console.
The VM opens in the viewer and connects to the VM over Console. You can now make your configuration changes
To identify the corresponding net adapter in the VM's OS, use the MAC address, which is displayed when you select the net adapter in the Edit Networks page.
