Connect VMworkstation virtual machine to internet throgh the host PC
Posted on 2008-10-30
Hi all, I have a small problem in what I thought would be a straight forward task.
My goal is to have a functioning copy of Win2k3 server running on VM workstation (I need the USB support for this task) which can both contact the internet and also access the host PC (Vista Business).
The virtual machine is running well. I originally created it on Virtual PC 2007 but it's lack of USB support pushed me onto VMware. So my question is how can I get the network connection on the VM to work.
Noob on virtualisation so if you could use small words and avoid sudden jerky movements I'd appreciate it.
