Simulator always show "Getting IP"

Trying to deploy an app on the simulator. I look in the bottom left for the IP but it always says "Getting IP..."


Anyone else have this problem?

Re: Simulator always show "Getting IP"

What interface mode do you have set in VMware? I have mine in bridge mode and didn't bother with others. Are you able to get any sort of log from your DHCP server to see if it attempted to get an address? Also, maybe try running wireshark on the physical interface and see if you can spot a DHCP request and response.
