More progress ! Thanks for that suggestion. I found a line about class routing
(not sure what this is) at the bottom of the SuSEfirewall script. Once
enabled VMware seems to be working.................in conjunction with
FW_DEV_INT="vmnet1 vmnet8"

I have got a permanent ip address from my Internet Service Provider. I wonder
if this should go into the script somewhere. For now ippp0 seems to be
working ok i.e. accessing the net.
