  • Multiple VM Network Setup | Different Networks

    Physical Host Machine Adapter: 67.134.223.0/28

    Virtual Machine has to be on 63.146.186.0/28 network and accessible from the world.

    How can i accomplish this? I think bridging to vmnet0 will not work and can't be found.

    Where is the router here? While I am not sure I am understanding the full picture here, I will make an attempt at answering this...

    Your host is on one network and you want the VM on another network.

    You could install a second adapter in the host and run it to the switch/router where this other network resides...

      Both of the networks mentioned above are physically connected on the same switch.

      I thought i could have different networks on the same host bridged adapter. So every vm on the host has to be on the same network as the host nic card or not necessarily?

      Another Example:

      COMP1: Connected to Switch (workstation) at 192.168.0.5.

      Host Server (VMWARE SERVER): 192.168.0.10

      VM1: 192.168.0.11
      VM2: 192.168.0.12
      VM3: 10.0.0.10

      Could the 10.0.0.0 network host node be accessed from the switch?

        Yes, you could do what you are saying - sure.

        Sorry for the misunderstanding.

        Of course, the only catch is that if both of these hosts (the physical host and the guest VM) want to get to the Internet, they both need routers on that LAN that will route the traffic from the two different networks. So, it would either have to be 2 routers or a router with 2 interfaces or a router with 1 interface with a primary & secondary IP address on that 1 interface.

        I hope that makes sense.

          Yes this makes complete sense, but, the other day i was trying to put a 10.0.0.15 on a vm on the mentioned host and i could not ping another physical workstation on the same lan (outside the vm enviroment )

          Yes, there are routers on the network routing these networks.

          This gets a bit tricky. The firewall was getting spoofing errors.
