    Re: routing in windows server 2008

    Are you trying to route between virtual guests? Assign the server two virtual NICs and enable RRAS. Create two VM guests and assign each guest to one of the two NICs so that the 2008 server is connected to the networks of each guest.

    Are you trying to route between the guests and the physical host? Assign the 2008 server two NICs. One will be bridged with the host, the other a private network. Enable RRAS. Add a NAT interface so that you do not have to worry about routes within your LAN. Place the guest VMs on the same virtual NIC as the 2008 server's 'private' side NIC.

    Can you elaborate on which networks you want to route between?
