    Firstly, I apologize for the title of this discussion, but this is my exact problem.

    In VMware Player, a test Windows VM, when I type anything into a windows explorer search bar or notepad file (or anywhere else, for that matter) the last character typed is repeated infinitely. When I type 'test' the word 'testtttttttttttttt...' is typed.


    I have tried different VMs, completely removing and reinstalling VMware Player and Tools, updating the BIOS on my machine and disabling legacy USB support, updating my keyboard driver and using different keyboards, editing the keyboard.typematicMinDelay value in the .vmx file (article ID 196) and still not luck.

    Note: this does NOT happen if the on-screen keyboard in windows within the VM is used.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated and I'll do my best to answer any questions ASAP

    --Previous announcement:



    2013.0325 - Announcing the latest V7 of the KingNeutron (Minimalist) Squid Proxy VM


    o Now Based on Long-Term-Support Ubuntu 12.04 ( Precise Pangolin ) -- JEOS ( Just Enough OS ) - Upgraded from Hardy!


    o Minimal download size


    o ESX* Compatible with SCSI vdisks - Plase Test!

    o Note: ESXi users will probably have to edit the /etc/network/interfaces after 1st boot.


    o Feature: Squid3 (and this release in general) are notably faster than previous releases.


    o  Takes minimal resources to run -- 128MB RAM alloc, 2 GB Growable Disk ( +4GB 2nd disk on sdb1, INCLUDED! ++ Pre-formatted for ext4 )


      • ROOT SSH logins are DENIED, out of the box -- login as " user " instead and SUDO or SU from there


      • Vmware Tools is NOT installed, for space reasons.


      • NO FIREWALL rules


      • NO GUI


                    o  Bridged networking is used by default, and the VM is expecting to  grab a  DHCP address on bootup.  IPV6 support has again been left  Enabled in this release.



    (Static MAC address assigned in VMX file - should Just Work anywhere)

    o Default STATIC IP:

    + This can be changed by editing " /etc/network/interfaces " and then issuing ' /etc/init.d/networking restart '.



      • Note, this is a TESTING release - PLEASE let me know if there are any bugs!

      • I have finally been able to test Logfile rotation on ESXi - works Ok out of the box


      • IMPORTANT   NOTE: When powering on the VM, tell Vmware you MOVED IT - not Copied  it  -- this may eliminate the hassle that some users have been seeing   with " NIC creep ", where eth0 migrates to eth1 ;-)



        • DISCLAIMER *** - Run at your own risk, default build only includes SSH ( port 22 ) and Squid (, port 3128 )

        • Not Responsible if this Virtual Appliance wows your ponycatbirdlizardbisongoldfish, and makes it run around in excitement! ***

    o sarg -- Squid analysis report generator

    o webmin-sarg


    o srg -- Detailed log analysis for squid


    o squid-cgi -- Cache manager interface




    Quick instructions (HOWTO):


    - Fire up the VM


    - Hit Alt-F5 and you can watch the bandwidth monitor


    Hit Alt+F1, LOGIN AS root and ** CHANGE THE PASSWORDS!! 1st thing **


    Client-side instructions:


    - Set ALL of your browser's Cache setting really low, like to 5-8 MB - and Delete it!  Huge disk space savings!


    -  Point your browser's Proxy setting to the VM's IP address ( default , port 3128 ) - you can point it to the DHCP address for  fast/temporary testing (issue ' ifconfig ' at the root or User prompt to  see the squid VM's DHCP IP address) or change it to whatever matches  your home network. I put it as a Class A address by default so it  matches my home setup and ((hopefully)) shouldn't interfere with other  setups.


    --Note  that this is a security feature as well.  I have my home net setup as a  Class A with all-static IPs, and everybody (browsers, Win updates, and apt-get) talks  to Squid.  Squid is usually the only box that has a DHCP address from  the router so it can talk to the Internet.


    --  Now here's the neat thing - multiple PCs on your network can have  *multiple browsers* - Firefox, Chrome, Opera, IE, Safari, Lynx, etc all  pointing to the Squid proxy, and it will cache and filter ( ad- and some  porn-sites, user definable ) requests for *everybody.*


    --  You know how AdBlock Plus works in Firefox?  Squid does something very  similar, only it does it for ANY browser.  Somebody loads the Yahoo  website? Well now you'll get it to load -faster- for you because it will  be pulled from the Squid cache.  Virus updates, ad-aware, apt-get and  Windows updates should also be faster because they won't have to be  downloaded from the Web multiple times.  ( And yes, pretty much all of  my physical PCs, laptops, and VMs go through my Squid proxy - I'm  "eating my own dog food" here. )



    o Basic tutorials here:





    - ACL / file extension filtering:




    --  There are a *LOT* of config file options; I've done the heavy lifting  and marked up /etc/squid.conf with " xxx " marks wherever things have  been changed, and it should Just Work out of the box.  The maximum  filesize that will get stored in-cache is 20MB, set by me.  If you're a  tweaker though, you can set it up to pretty much store and filter  whatever you want. ( Hint: as root, edit the following in /etc/squid3:  adsblock.txt, porn.txt, notporn.txt -- and then issue ' squiderr ' )


    NOTE: For this release, the /etc/squid3/squid.conf file has been drastically reduced in size (most of the in-file documentation is gone) but you can still search for "xxx" and especially "EDIT ME" strings for important values that may need to be changed.


    IMPORTANT NOTE: For this release, Squid is using the "network lockdown" settings - so it may not work "out of the box" like previous versions did.  Edit /etc/squid3/squid.conf and change the network ACLs to match your setup, then issue ' squiderr '.


    --  If you are really anticipating a lot of usage, you should go ahead and  bump up the settings - give the VM 256 MB RAM or more, change /etc/squid3/squid.conf for extra memory and cache space.  You may also need to possibly  tweak some other settings.  Repeat as needed - you can always replace  the 2nd vdisk with a bigger one, or add more disks.

    NOTE: ' squid  -kshutdown; sleep 30; squid -z; squid ' will activate the extra disk  space once you are done editing the config file.



    -->  Look in /etc/squid3 dir for ad-blocking settings, and don't forget to '  squid -kreconfigure ' ( or ' squiderr ' ) if you change things...



    --  Note for people who like SANE text editors, that don't remind you of  EDLIN - I've included Joe (' jstar ', for those of us who actually miss  WordStar), and Midnight Commander, which comes with ' mcedit ' -- you're  NOT limited to VI !!!  The nano editor is installed as well, if you're used to it.



    Have fun...


    / Post bug reports - If I don't hear anything for (2) weeks, consider it a full release!




    --Things to do every so often to keep the appliance up to date:


    o It's a good idea to login as " root " once a month or so and run the ' updt ' script.  This will update installed packages and apply security updates.

    Running ' updt ' will also sync up the VM's time/date.


    o Check your logs with ' mc /var/log ' and then use F3 to view the log files


    o Check free disk space with ' df -h '


    o Check RAM free and swapfile usage with ' free '


    - Hit Alt-F9 and you can see your uptime with the running " top " virtual console


    --I  have had uptimes in excess of 100 days easily with Squid V6 running on  ESXi; you just power it on, and it should pretty much take care of  itself.    However, make sure you limit Squid's memory so the OOM-killer doesn't get you.


    ./. If you have appreciated my response, please remember to apply Helpful/Correct points. TIA

    setting up a VM with Windows 7 SP1 x86 as guest on VMware Player 7.x, I discovered the following problem:

    I installed Office 2013 from Office 365. In the VM's settings graphics acceleration is activated. In Guest OS Aero works fine.

    Starting to edit a text in Word 2013, the program crashes always, when I start to format the text with any font. Deactivating graphics acceleration in the VM's settings, the problem doesn't appears.

    It may be a minor problem, but it simply disturbs me.


    Host system: Windows 8.1 x64, AMD APU with integrated graphics AMD Radeon HD7560D. Driver version Catalyst 14.4.


    Has anyone a solution or suggestion? Thanks in advance for feedback!

    Hello All,


    I am in the process of building an internal web server for testing. I am having the issue of trying to get my Netgear Router to identify each individual MAC Address. Instead it is just copying the MAC Address of Eth0(Eth1 in the Chart below). Granted each IP is different, they are all associated with the main eth interface MAC Address. Can I get VMWare to tell my Netgear that each IP is suppose to be an separated MAC Address? or Would this be more of a Netgear issue?

    I have an error on my Vmware windows that does not let it to start.




    it used to work fine and an old copy of the same vmware file works just fine. I have already tried to "run as administrator", rename executiion file and started the authorization service again with no luck ...


    Now I am wondering how could I restore some of the files I have in this wmware os ? is it possible ?


    Thanks for your help

    just installed VMWare Player and subsequently Linux Mint 17 on both my desktop pc and my laptop. Worked flawlessly on my desktop pc whereas on the laptop when I click install vmware tools nothing would happen. I am guessing it's because the laptop doesn't have a physical drive so I can only add a CD/DVD drive with the .iso option and then VM Player can't load the iso needed to install tools. Anyhow, I moved the tarball from my desktop to the laptop and installed it but for some reason the vmware player settings interface says I have to update my tools in order to use 3D acceleration. Again... I cant install the update the usual way since if I click install nothing happens.


    Any ideas?

    Hello forum,


    I'd like your help with an issue that has me perplexed.


    I'm running Elementary OS 0.2.1 "Luna" 32-bit (built on Ubuntu 12.04 "Precise") guest on a Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit host.

    I have enabled shared folders in the virtual machine settings and installed vmware tools in the guest OS, however there seems to be errors in compiling the vmhgfs module so shared folders don't work (/mnt/hgfs/ is empty), though everything else does (like auto changing resolution, dragging and dropping files).

    Entering "vmware-hgfsclient" in terminal lists the shared folder that I want to use. I tried mounting it manually by editing /etc/fstab but that didn't work (or I'm doing it wrong).

    I've pasted below a segment of the output of for clarity.



    The VMware Host-Guest Filesystem allows for shared folders between the host OS

    and the guest OS in a Fusion or Workstation virtual environment.  Do you wish

    to enable this feature? [yes]

    The filesystem driver (vmhgfs module) is used only for the shared folder

    feature. The rest of the software provided by VMware Tools is designed to work

    independently of this feature.



    If you wish to have the shared folders feature, you can install the driver by

    running again after making sure that gcc, binutils, make

    and the kernel sources for your running kernel are installed on your machine.

    These packages are available on your distribution's installation CD.

    I extended spaces (20GB) on my VM (Linux), and I also have used GPARTED to resize it (see attached files), However, there are something wrong or something that I need to do and I missed it.


    If you see the screenshots, you will be able to see some differences: the name of devices as /dev/sda1 and 2, but on Linux, the names are /dev/hda1 and 2. On gparted I am able to see the 20GB added to the sda2, but I am not able to see on Linux.


    See below other information such as df command, and pv and lv.


    So, if someone could help me how to add the space (on root directory) with no losing the data, I would appreciate a lot.

    That's the situation:


    VMWare player Pro 7.1.0. My laptop runs Windows 8.1 and I've got a Virtual Machine running Windows XP (Service Pack 3).



    Everything is working OK until Windows 8.1 installs its common updates (even if I've told it not to install them automatically).


    And then, my VM do not recognize some USB devices: the printer and whatever flash disk I plug in are not recongized, although the mouse and keyboard they are do recognized and work properly. It is not a question of USB ports.

    The "Removable Devices" Menu doesn't show the typical Submenu "USB devices".


    The only thing that I can do is to reinstall VMPlayer, and select the "Repair" Option. And then everything is working properly again, I can see again the "USB devices" Submenu, the printer prints and so on.


    >> So, can anybody help me? Why is this happening? I do not want to repeat this 5 to 10 minute process everytime my wIndows 8.1 is updating (something that it is necessary sometimes).


    Thanks for you attention. Some ideas are welcome.

    Good day all.


    My situation is as such:
    VMware NICs.png


    I have a virtual machine running Red Hat Enterprise Linux as a guest OS and my hosts device is a laptop running Windows 8.1. Each operating system has two Network interface Cards. I want to place the virtual machine in-line between a router that would be on the left (Intranet side) and the Firewall followed by the Internet on the right (internet side). I'm hoping there's some option that would allow me to effectively "bind" one of each virtual NIC to each physical NIC, so that when I place the host machine inline on the network, it would be like the virtual machine would be inline also. So basically, I want to accomplish what's been highlighted in RED in my little figure above.


    The complete rectangle is the guest OS with its two NICs at each side, and the incomplete rectangle is the host device with its own two NICs found at either side. I'm hoping someone could point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated.

    I have Ubuntu 12.04 LTS linux running in a VMWare Player 6 VM, in a Win7 host.


    This install has been stable for >2yrs, but after some Ubuntu updates today, my screen now boots into 3 repeated and truncated panes.  See bottom of msg for how the display shows.

    I found this VMWare KB article that describes the issue, but I'm unsure this applies to Player6:

    VMware KB: Linux Guest Display Splits into Multiple Panes with Identical Content


    I had installed VMWare Tools using the Player controls, but running the prescribed command in Ubuntu terminal:

    sudo --overwritesvga

    ....doesn't do anything, just gets me to the man pages for this config package.


    Help appreciated!  I'm unable to use this VM as is.

    I have installed Xubuntu v-14.10 in VMware Player v-7.1.0 build-2496824 for several reasons. My primary purpose was to install xfce v-4.12 as Xubuntu seems to be the sole distro to make it easy to upgrade xfce. 

    Incidental, it worked without any hitches. The other, actually more important, reason the use as a test bed before installing new applications on my production machine.


    However, to the problem.


    The installer installed the  3.16.0-23 kernel.  Happily, with that kerned I could access the Host C: drive.  However, updating the kernel to 3.160.31, necessitating the reinstallati0on of vmware-tools, resulted in errors in the reinstallation that makes the hos C: drive unavailable,


    It seems to me that there may be two solutions.  Number one would be to revet to the -23 kernel.  Now, I am  not too thrilled with this

    solution1  It's been years since I've compiled a linux kernel, about 20 r so, and I am not too cm=comfortable with the idea of monkeying with grub.


    The second solution would be to successfully install vmware-tools with the -31 kernel.  The error messages I got are in the attached log file.


    I hope that someone on the list has a solution.


    Thanks In  advance.
