To configure the promiscous mode, you have to do that "before you open vmware workstation" -->

For ubuntu ...

rm -rf /lib/udev/devices
mkdir /lib/udev/devices
cp -rp /dev/vm* /lib/udev/devices/
chmod a+rw /lib/udev/devices/vm
chmod a+rw /dev/vm

you can put these commands in a script file and execute it [use sudo]

check the original answer on vmware website https://www.vmware.com/support/ws5/doc/ws_net_advanced_linux_vadapter_promiscuous.html

put three things in mind
- its slightly different for some linux distros ...
- do that before you open vmware workstation
- its not permenant, so you have to do it everytime

Thats how it works for me. Good luck
