I looked for a message from bootpd but there weren't any. Even using a static IP address the PC couldn't access the internet. Windows seems to default the subnet mask to 255.255.255.0, but I set it to 255.255.0.0 - using either of the two didn't make a difference, though.

I'd need to test this with a different computer to see where the problem really lies, but do you think that VMWare's network interfaces are interfering? After just enabling internet sharing, here's what the log shows:
Code:

2/2/08 11:44:18 AM mDNSResponder[25] getifaddrs ifa_netmask for vmnet1(8) Flags 8863 Family  2 192.168.188.1 has different family: 0

2/2/08 11:44:18 AM mDNSResponder[25] SetupAddr invalid sa_family 0
And when the ethernet link is established, mDNSResponder shows the same messages, as in my first post.
