  • How to setup simple virtual network and share internet via Vmware?

    Hi,

    Very briefly, I have installed a simple network and I was able to share file as so on but couldn't share intenet connection among the virtual machines. Please refer to the attached image.

    I made on of the XP boxes as router with 2 interfaces one as host-only (inside) and the another is as bridge. I have enabled the bridge interface in XP router to share its connection via Network setup connection and ordered another XP machine to join this sharing by the same way "Network setup connection". Now, every thing is OK with sharing and connecting but with out intern.

    Any suggestions, solutions?

    Thanks in advance.

    put the guest with two nics on the "NAT" interface, rather than Bridged.

    See if that helps. (Sure, you'll be double nat-ing, but does it matter?)

    Are you only trying to share files on the internal guests, or do you want to share files from your non-virtual network as well ?

      Thanks for replaying,

      actually I am trying to make a virtual network lab which is should be completely different from the host machine (Windows 7).

      now the virtual network is OK but without internet connection. I want it to share the internet from my host's internet to the inside virtual network...

      I dont want to make a file sharing between the host and the virtual network.

      Thanks

                Runs from a .flp file and is pretty tiny.

                I'm sure i have it somewhere if you want a copy.
