I have a Inspiron 11 3000 series, that has a 802.11n broadcom adapter.
Running FreeBSD 11 release P9 as a guest on vmware workstation 12.5.7, and
it detected the interface em0
If I configure guest freebsd as NAT to used to share the host's IP address,
my interface gets an IP address via DHCP
em0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
inet 192.168.60.130 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.60.255
media: Ethernet autoselect (1000baseT <full-duplex>)
If I configure FreeBSD as Bridged: connected directly to the physical
network, which is what I want, no IP gets assigned to the interface.
Any idea why?
