    Why does VPC assign a 192.168.131.x address?

    I can't communicate to my regular 192.168.1.x network.

    Am I missing something here?

    What version of VPC?

    As far as I know, VPC doesn't assign *anything*, or at least it doesn't

    Wrong, read the help file about networking ... it does
    assign 192.168.131.x addresses.

    All I want is the guest to be on my host's network with a
    similar IP.

    I only said I don't see that behaviour here. You've been round my house and
    checked to see what my setup does and found out I'm mistaken have you?

    Ok, It says in the help that getting the DHCP addresses that NAT hands out
    in that range is a consequence of using the NAT feature. I assume you've
    turned that off (setting the adapter settings to use the host adapter
    directly) and are still having difficulty?

  5. Then instead of using shared networking, which gets you the 192.168.131.x
    IP, use the network adapter on the host. With that setting the VM appears
    as another machine on your network, its IP addressed being assigned by the
    DHCP server on your network if there is one, or you can manually configure
    a static IP.

  6. Sorry Tom, I was on the NAT setup ... I changed it to
    shared to use the Host nic and all is well. Ugh. No
    worries ... :)
