Problem with VMWARE:
I want to setup 2 networks: 1 bridge (use switch VMNet0) and one local, use switch VMNet2. Two networks connect to each other through a virtual machine (call V1), use 2 adapters for this 2 networks.
My problem is , after V1 connect to VMNet2, i can't connect to Internet, although i can ping well. If i disable the interface to VMNet2, V1 surfs web, ssh well.

 Please help me !
Thanks

You cannot do it this way.  The HOST to the virtual machine must have one network enabled, and if the virtual machine loads another network, THEN it can see the host network.  But if the virtual machine is the bridge between 2 networks, it cannot work, because the host does not see the virtual machine bridge, since the HOST OS started before the VM did, and it cannot recurse the VM network connections to make them live for the host OS.  Get it?
