The current version of VMWare (Workstation 6.5.1, 6.5.2, Server 2.0.1, Player) doesn’t support NAT on Windows 7 (RC1). Typically you can ping servers and do nslookups but not use your Internet Browser or ssh/telnet etc. But you can use the Internet Connection Sharing (ICS).
A more complex solution by removing all virtual adapters can be found in this VMWare Forum thread but this made some troubles on my PC so I simplified these instructions.
It is not necessary to restart the NAT service.
If you have configured a fixed IP inside your VM you must change the IP4 Gateway and DNS1 to 192.168.137.1
Note 1: Port forwarding has to be configured using the ICS Settings button, not the VMWare NAT-Dialog.
Note 2: Windows 7 Beta seems to use 192.168.37.1 as IP für ICS.
Note 3: no Windows Firewall changes are necessary
