    Dears,

    I have a server with 2 network cards. 1 has a subnet of X and one has the subnet of Y.

    I have serveral virtual machines (using vmware) connected thru vmnet0 which according to vmware its bridges towards the 1st physical nic and that would be X in my case.

    Oke how do I tell a virtual machine running xp to use subnet Y and to connect it thru physical network address 2 which has subnet Y? is it possible?


    Note that the Y subnet has different mask and gateway. Also I can ping from the host the gateway of subnet Y but in the virtual guest, I can't.

    Regards,

    Saad

    We assume you do use Workstation
    You specify in VM setup which network to use

    I am using the web vmware, I solved it by adding the following lines to the virtual machine configuration file:


    Ethernet1.present = "TRUE"

    Ethernet1.connectionType = "custom"

    Ethernet1.vnet = "VMnet2"

    saving it and reloading the machine.
