To fix this we will need to apply this patch to filter.c in VMware Player module sources.

Step No 1

create a file in tmp directory name filter.c.diff and copy paste the following code init.

nano /tmp/filter.c.diff

205a206  > #if LINUX_VERSION_CODE < KERNEL_VERSION(3, 13, 0)  206a208,210  > #else  > VNetFilterHookFn(const struct nf_hook_ops *ops,        // IN:  >
