You can connect the virtual network adapter for the virtual machine and set the type of networking to use.

VMware Fusion does not support Bridged networking to a VPN. If you have set a VPN to have the top priority in your Mac system preferences, you must lower its priority if you intend to use bridged networking with autodetect in your virtual machine.


Select Virtual Machine > Settings.


Under Removable Devices in the Settings window, select Network Adapter.


Drag the Enable Network Adapter slider to ON.

VMware Fusion retains and reapplies the setting you select when you start up the virtual machine.


Select the networking type.

Share the Mac's network connection (NAT)

Connect directly to the physical network (Bridged)

Select the connection type in the pop-down menu.

Create a private network available only to the Mac (Host Only)
