1.6 Configuring the Virtual Network Interface
You need to configure the virtual network interface only if the computer you are using for Cooper NMS has multiple
physical network adapters. If the computer has a single adapter communicating with network devices you want to
monitor, skip this section and go directly to “1.7 Running the Cooper NMS Virtual Machine.”
NOTE To find out about the computer’s configuration, consult your IT administrator. If the computer has
more than one network adapter, find out what each adapter is being used for. You need to know which
adapter is communicating to the network devices you want to monitor.
Binding the Virtual Network to the Appropriate Adapter
When VMware Player installs, it creates three virtual network interfaces—VMNet0, VMnet1, and VMnet8 (described
below). If the VMnet0 network interface (used by Cooper NMS) is configured as Automatic and your computer has
more than one physical network adapter, when VMware Player starts it will automatically “bind” VMnet0 to the first
adapter that it finds—which may not be the adapter communicating to the network devices you want to monitor.
• VMNet0—Default virtual interface used by Cooper NMS (this interface does not typically show up in the list of
Windows Network interfaces).
• VMnet1—Host-only interface.
• VMnet8—NAT interface.
In the following procedures, you will use the VMware Player utility called “Virtual Network Editor” to manually bind
(bridge) the VMNet0 virtual interface to the physical adapter on your computer that is associated with the external
network you want to monitor. If you want to monitor more than one network, steps are also provided to configure
Cooper NMS to use multiple network interfaces.
Running the Virtual Network Editor Utility
Follow these steps to extract the Virtual Network Editor utility and start it up.
1. Open a command prompt window (Run as Administrator) by clicking the Windows Start button and selecting
Run from the menu.
2. When the Run window opens, type “cmd” in the text box and press Enter.
3. When the command window opens, browse to the directory where the VMware Player installer file was saved
(as described in section “1.3 Installing VMware Player”) by typing cd/CooperNMS.
4. Run the VMware extraction process by typing VMware-player-4.0.4-744019.exe /e c:\vmware.
This command extracts the contents of the installer to the c:\vmware folder.
5. Using Windows Explorer, browse to the directory c:\vmware.
6. Open the file network.cab.
This is a compressed file that Windows should be able to open. If you have difficulty opening it, try using a file
compression software utility, such as WinZip.
7. Extract the contents of the network.cab file to the VMware Player directory C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware
Player.
One way to do this is to select all files in the network.cab file, and then right click and select Extract to the
directory C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Player.
8. Run the Virtual Network Editor utility, vmnetcfg.exe.

9. Go on to the next section, “Configuring Adapter Settings.”
Configuring Adapter Settings
Next, you will manually bind (bridge) the virtual VMnet0 interface (used by Cooper NMS) to the physical Ethernet
adapter used to communicate to the external Ethernet devices you want to monitor. Before beginning, make sure
you know what the adapters on the Cooper NMS computer are being used for. Your IT administrator can provide
this information.
1. When the Virtual Network Editor utility starts, select the VMnet0 interface in the top selection box.
Notice that VMnet0 is currently bridged with an Auto-bridging external connection. In the next step, you will
change this so that it binds to the physical Ethernet adapter that is being used to communicate to the external
Ethernet devices that you want to monitor.
2. If you know the name of the adapter, change the “Bridged to” drop down text box selection from “Automatic”
to the name of the network adapter.
In the example the adapter is named “Realteck RTL8139/810x Fast Ethernet NIC.” If you do not know the
name of the network adapter, see the section “Finding the Network Adapter Name.”
12
NOTE Do not change the binding of the VMnet1 and VMnet8 interfaces. These interfaces are used
internally by the NMS for Host Only and NAT communications.

3. Click OK to continue.
The VMnet0 virtual network interface is now bound to the physical network adapter for the network that you
will be monitoring with Cooper NMS. If you want to monitor additional networks, go on to the next section,
“Adding Additional Networks.”
Adding Additional Networks
If you want Cooper NMS to monitor devices on more than one external Ethernet network, follow these steps to add
new virtual networks and then bridge them to physical network adapters in the computer.
1. In the Virtual Network Editor window, click Add Network. Select the next network name and click OK.
2. When the new network name appears in the top window, select the name. From the “Bridged to” drop-down
menu, select the network adapter used by the network you want to monitor.
If you do not know the name of the network adapter, see the section “Finding the Network Adapter Name.”
3. After the new virtual network is added, click OK to continue.
4. Next, confirm that the Virtual Machine’s network adapter settings match the network, which in turn is bound to
a physical network adapter:
a. Select Virtual Machine Settings from the top Virtual Machine menu.
b. When the Virtual Machine Settings window opens, select the appropriate network adapter and confirm
that the correct network connection is selected.

Cooper Network Management System Installation Guide
3. Select either dhcp for dynamic IP address assignment or static for manual IP address assignment and press
Enter.
Select “static” if you are manually assigning IP addresses to the devices in your network. If IP addresses are
assigned automatically by a DHCP server in your network, then select “DHCP.” If you are unsure, check with
your IT administrator for further guidance.
If you select DHCP, you should ensure that the NMS virtual machine is always assigned the same IP address
by the DHCP server. Each time the IP address of the device changes, the NMS software will need to be
re-activated, so it is important to ensure the NMS virtual machine has a fixed IP address.
NOTE If you select the DHCP option, you will need to provide the MAC address of the Cooper NMS
virtual machine to your IT administrator and request that the DHCP server be configured such that
the IP address used for the Cooper NMS virtual machine does not change after it is reset. A procedure
is provided at the end of this chapter for retrieving the MAC address (“2.5 Retrieving the Virtual
Machine MAC Address”).
The following example shows a static IP selection.
4. Enter a valid IP address.
The IP address of Cooper NMS should belong to the same subnet as the wireless network. If a wireless
network device has an IP address for instance of 192.168.0.10, the IP address of Cooper NMS should be
192.168.0.x, with ‘x’ being a unique address that is not in use by any device in the network.
The Netmask and Broadcast IP addresses can be changed if required, but they will automatically use the
default values if the fields are left empty. The Netmask default is 255.255.255.0, and Broadcast IP default is
192.168.0.255.
To delete Netmask and Broadcast entries, move the cursor to the end of the entry and use the Backspace key
to delete the address.
Gateway is the Default Gateway IP address in the Local Area Network that provides access to the Internet. For
more information, select <Help>.

2.3 Agent Configuration
If your system includes 455U-D serial modems, a serial-to-Ethernet converter (called an “Agent”) is required to
handle communications with Cooper NMS, which is Ethernet-based. The 455U-D may use a local or external Agent,
depending on how the system is configured.
• Local Agent—Cooper NMS includes a preconfigured serial-to-Ethernet converter (Ser2Eth) to handle
communications with 455U-D modems directly connected to the computer on which Cooper NMS is running.
The Ser2Eth Agent is automatically configured for the COM1 port. This is the default configuration.
See Figure 1.
• External Agent—For 455U-D modems that are not directly connected to the Cooper NMS computer, an
external serial-to-Ethernet Agent, such as the 605M-R1 router, is required to be connected to the 455U-D
gateway to handle communications with Cooper NMS. See Figure 2.
If the 455U-D is using a local Agent, complete the following procedure to configure its port settings. If the 455U-D
is using an external Agent, skip this procedure and go on to the next section. Configuring an external Agent is
covered in the Quick Start Guide.

2.5 Retrieving the Virtual Machine MAC Address
This configuration step is only necessary if you configured the Cooper NMS virtual machine to use DHCP address
assignment in “2.1 Configuring Basic Network Settings.” If you are using a static IP address for Cooper NMS, skip
to the next chapter to access Cooper NMS.
If you opted to use DHCP address assignment, you will need to request that your IT administrator configure the
DHCP server so that the IP address used for the Cooper NMS virtual machine does not change. Otherwise, the IP
address will change each time the computer resets or the virtual machine reboots. Your IT administrator will ask for
the MAC address of the virtual machine. Use the following procedure to retrieve the MAC address.
1. Open the VMware Player window from the Taskbar.
2. Type the command ifconfig-a|grep ethX, where “X” is the Ethernet port that you configured in “2.1
Configuring Basic Network Settings.”
The MAC address for the Cooper NMS virtual machine appears after “HWaddr.”
3. Provide the MAC address and the IP address to your IT administrator and ask him to configure the DHCP
server so that the IP address used for the Cooper NMS virtual machine does not change after it is reset.
