Host OS - Window 7 professional

Installed Ubuntu 16.04 inside Virtual Machine (VMWare)

While internet is freely accessible in the host OS I can't access it inside the virtual machine.

The curious thing is my company has provided a pre-configured CentOS image which inside the virtual machine can access internet.

The VMWare settings for both CentOS and Ubuntu are same. Also the network settings inside both the OS have been checked to be the same.

What can be the solution for this?

Result of ifconfig

Result of sudo ufw status

Status: inactive

Result of env | grep -i proxy

$ env | grep -i proxy

I have hidden my actual company proxy.

Result of more /etc/apt/apt.conf

more: stat of /etc/apt/apt.conf failed: No such file or directory

proxy is not installed. I can't install it as there is no internet connection.

  • Time to start troubleshooting then. Please post the output of ifconfig and sudo ufw status.

  • Edit you answer and add the output of these env | grep -i proxy; more /etc/apt/apt.conf and proxy ip and proxy port.
