From another message, thanks to Chris:

From console menu, rename your lan+wan interfaces to "lnc0","lnc1", then
define your networks(ip/masks) to these interfaces.

It works just fine except some kernel timing porblems (traffic
shaping+graphs doesnt work as well as native).

Onderwerp: [m0n0wall] m0n0wall inside VMWare

i`m new to m0n0wall and from my first point of view it seems to be really
I want to test it (and later use it) under VMWare to create a virtual
firewall system.
unfortunately it don`t get it to function properly I tried v1.2b3 and v1.11
- and both recognice the virtual pcnet network adapters:

LAN -> sis0
WAN -> sis1

After configuring the ip, i cannot reach the system. (LAN is bridged via
/dev/vmnet0) I also configured a different virtual adapter type in the .vmx
file (ethernetX.virtualDev = "vlance") but that seems to make no difference.
When I choose 1) and assign interfaces/network ports, I see the correct MAC
Adresses of the NICs - but when I choose autodetection, the tool tells me
"No link-up detected". I`m sure there is a link, because there are three
linux boxes running on the same host without any problem.

I use VMWare 5 latest beta. It runs perfect with Linux, Windows and all
other OSses I tried.

Can anybody give me a hint what I can do to further dig into the problem and
probably solve it ?
Can I get a shell in m0n0wall and is there something like a mii-tool/ethtool
(as in linux) ?
