From what I understand, I think I can create a virtual serial port to connect them through.The problem is that I don't fully understand how to do this. If I go into the Virtual Machine Settings, then click the add button, bringing up the add hardware wizard, I get an option for setting up a serial port. If I choose serial port and hit the next button, I am then given the options of a physical serial port on the host (I think this is the one I definitely don't want to do), output to file, and output to socket.
I've tried to find some info on this myself, but can't seem to find anything I can make sense of. If anyone could explain these different options, how to set them up, or explain what I want to be using to make sure none of this stuff gets out of the virtual machines, I would be very grateful.

I am trying to connect two virtual machines in VMware Player to teach myself how to use metasploit. As such, I want to make sure the two virtual machines are only connected to each other and can't actually get online. I'm very new to metasploit and I want to make sure everything is contained.
AFAIK the virtual serial ports are only to connect to/from the host machine and the VMWARE client machine. I did use a app for bonding/looping back serial ports (which would run on the host machine), but can't remember the name of it at the moment.
What you probably want to do is use the 'virtual network editor' and set a network segment that only the 2 virtual machines are operating on. This way they can scan/probe each other without affecting the host machine, or other real machines on your LAN.

I don't see it anywhere.
Ahh... you're running VMPlayer, I'm running VMServer. So it may only be available under server, which is also downloadable at no-cost.

Well I got the DHCP server up and running. Finally found this site which helped me with the ip.
Did it work? If that doesn't, then you really should just get VMware Workstation (it includes the Virtual Network Manager). VMware Player is worthless gahbage.
