Hi les,

Tnx a lot for your answer!
As expected, the solution was indeed wery simple, and was found  
within 10 seconds after reading your crucial hint:

 >NAT and bridged are 2 different settings.  Shut down the VM, change  
the setting for the interface
 >and restart.

For some reason which is beyond me, as opposed to VMware, indeed it  
was set to 'shared network' instead of bridged! Switching it to  
bridged, and then manually setting the IP address as desired in  
CentOS works a charm.

Tnx a lot, and cheers!
