Yesterday the technician told me to configure bridging in VMware when I created the virtual Freebsd server.  This worked fine, but I'm wondering if there is a way to configure this outside of VMware.  I tried this on a Freebsd v8.2:

Your FreeBSD just need one IP, which should be in same range as your 
In FreeBSD as guest you don't need to configure bridge.
