Hi Everyone:

Scratching my head on this one.    I have a XP Hpper-V machine that I created .  I installed the legacy network adapter so the OS has a NIC driver and loads up just fine.  Although, I can't seem to pass traffic via the VM machine or hit any of IP's within my network?   Any suggestions?  Basically, I want my users to get to that XP Hyper-V via RDP and run a few applications.

Thanks in advance,

Sam

Did you configure the VMs NIC to connect to a Virtual Network (Virtual Switch) which is connected to the Physical NIC? Make sure that the Virtual Network is set as 'External network' but not 'Internal only'

Obviously, if there is no routing process, the VM must be in the same subnet as your User's VMs.

Let me know how it goes.

It looks like I had created one to many external NIC..  I removed all of them and basically created one external NIC and matched it up with the VM machine.  That did the trick.  Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!!!!
