Change VMware Workstation NAT IP Range

I’m using VMware Fusion on the (home) Mac and VMware Workstation on the (work) Windows.
From time to time, I have to share a VM between those two environments. Unfortunately, the NAT range automatically configured by those tools aren’t the same. Here’s how to use the same NAT range :

On the Windows machine, start the VMware Virtual Network Editor and select the NAT interface. In my case, this was vmnet8. Enter the NAT range you want to use and click Apply.

The VM will now use the newly configured NAT range.

This works with VMware® Workstation and VMware® Player 7.1.2 build-301548.
