Hi, im using vmware to do some simple network testing. Could someone please help me out an explain how i can use a virtual switch? Im trying to replicate what i have in the office which is two domains (each with one switch) connecting the 2 domains with a vm which is set to allow ip routing and i've setup the routing table correctly. I cant find any tutorials eplaining how to create a virtual switch, if someone can point me to one, or explain how to do it i'd be very grateful
