I am pretty new in Teradata, I have just installed Teradata Express for VMware
Can I configure this Teradata environment to connect from my Laptop? And not from inside of the VM?
Please can you share the procedure to configure this environment?
You need to use NAT (Network Address Translation) with Port Forwarding to map the standard Teradata Port (1025) through from your laptop to the VM. However, more recent VM Player version have not installed vmnetcfg.exe program required to do this. If you search for "VMPlayer NAT Port Forwarding" on the net there are many explanations of how install and run this program.
Remeber you are trying to forward port 1025 from your lap top IP address to the same port on the VM's IP address such that client utilities (BTEQ, TPT) and Applications (Teradata Studio) can connect from your Lap top space into your VP.
