    Default Stupid Question

    Hey Guys,

    so i'm starting to study for 291, with Vm's.

    pretty much my issue is with vmware..

    need to have 2 nics in a vm, one which is connected to the physical network so i can get internet access and then the other one connectd to the internal vm "network"

    but i have no idea how to configure this, as every time

    i make the nic in vmware "bridged" it doesnt work as supposed to.

    basically need to get 2 nics, one with internet, and one internal, and then share the first nic with ics...

    My setup is with only 1x nic bridged; VMs connect to Internet and vice versa.
    Are both NICs on the same subnet? May not be able to route.
    Do you have more info re ipconfig?

    nic1 is in bridged mode in vmware settings to host.

    i get dhcp from the physical network ( and internet)
    but when i enable the second nic, which is just setup as a internal nic in the vm. net drops.

    assume this is because it detects that i have no dns on the (lan connection) and dns on the (internet connection)

    pretty much just following the ms press book.
    and am stuck before i have even started

    I used 1 nic in nat and then another on vmnet9. I then configured RRAS on that server and enabled NAT so that all my VM's worked on this internal network, and I could very easily decide if I should let them get to the internet. Plus it gave me real experience working with RRAS.

    In virtualbox, you set one nic as nat and the other as host only and it works great.
