Hi i wonder if i can draw on someones expertise

This is what i want to do and need to know how it could be done please or somewehere i can find to research it,i want to have a virtual network setup with a server/client( i know this is possible )( at present this on an xp machine with network access)
but i want to be able access the internet through this virtual network via our existing proxy (isa) without any conflicts to our existing domains.
I have a router that i can use if needed i have a good spec machine setup with vmware on it and a server 2003 install at the moment i can access the internet.
i have no idea how to configure the vm machines to use the proxy to gain internet access,any help would be greatly appreciated even if it is only to point me somewhere helpful

Hi,

Can you please update if the VM NIC is set to bridged or NAT. If it is show and you want your VMs to access the internet, you can set the proxy settings in the IE or Firefox which ever is your browser.

If you have set the network card to host only then you will only be able to connect to the HOST machine from the VM.

So, either set your VM to use NAT where in it will try to use your host machine internet access or set it to Bridged which can obtain a IP from the DHCP in your environment.
