Yesterday the technician told me to configure bridging in VMware when I created the virtual Freebsd server.  This worked fine, but I'm wondering if there is a way to configure this outside of VMware.  I tried this on a Freebsd v8.2:

Have you vmware configure to bridge your vm?

Your FreeBSD just need one IP, which should be in same range as your 
network.
In FreeBSD as guest you don't need to configure bridge.
