TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

Network connection stopped working

s.w.collings's picture

I've been running a Turnkey MediaWiki install for the last few weeks with no difficulty.  Today for no apparent reason the appliance's network connection has failed.  There have been no configuration changes to the host, the appliance, or the network.  The appliance can't ping any network host, nor can any network host ping the appliance.  I have no earthly idea what's wrong.  Can someone give me some clues where to start looking?  Thanks.

Ran into the same symptom.

Looked like a problem with the virtual machine, but it was an issue with VMWare virtual networking.

Resolved on my system by forcing VMWare bridged mode to bind to a specific adapter, even though only one adapter was listed.
