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

Thanks

The concept behind the vSwitch is that your vSwitch is connected to your physical NIC or NIC's. You then assign the guest sessions to the vSwitch.
