Hi, Rush -
Well, depending on your native machine's network devices and the VM's
configuration, it can be possible to point your native browser to the
VM's IP; however, unless you've engaged in some fancy VM trickery (I've
only ever been able to do this when I had two NICs; one was bridged with
the VM's virtual network adapter, the other used by the native OS to
connect to the Internet. I don't remember all the details, but it was a
pain to set up), this probably isn't the case.
Just open a browser up inside the VM and point it at the given IP, and
you should be fine, though!
Hope that helps!

Subject: [OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] Gentoo VMware Image Question
Prior to posting this I read the FAQ, the online documentation, and
browsed through the Open-ils General Archives.
I've downloaded the 1.2.0 Evergreen VMware image.
Following the instructions I can successfully start the Evergreen
related services and Apache.
ifconfig reports that my inet addr is 127.0.0.1
Here is where I get a bit fuzzy. As I read the directions, I can point
a browser on my host machine to http://127.0.0.1 <http://127.0.0.1/>
and "see the beautiful default Evergreen catalog interface."
I read this as open a browser outside of the VMWare environment, which
is where I get confused. I did not think I could interact with
processes running in the VMware environment.
Thank you for your kind assistance.
