Physical card has IP

using the command line interface on CUCM I can see the ip as

CUCM 8.0 on VM


'Bridge' networking does exactly that - makes your PC NIC, and the VM NIC work as if they are physically connected to the same VLAN/subnet.

What it doesn't do is any IP magic, so you have to ensure that your PC NIC and VM NIC have iP addresses that are layer-2 adjacent.

To prove this, set your PC NIC to, and then browse to

Typically I would either:

1) Set the CUCM to be on an IP address of my home LAN, as 90% of the time this is where I use the VM

2) Set the networking to 'host only' on the VM. You will have a host-only NIC linked to this network, and can see the address of it when you look in the VMWare networking prefernces. You would need to give the VM an IP that matches this subnet. Bear in mind that host-only means just that - other hosts (IP phones on your LAN, other PCs) cannot reach the VM, but you could have a CIPC on your computer (or in a another VM on the same host-only virtual network) that could register to it.
