My host Win2003 host machine has a 100meg NIC. I have a WinXP virtual server running on it this virtual machine shares the same 100meg NIC as its host.
Now, does the data travel between them through the NIC (i.e. at 100meg) or does it travel internally, i.e. through software. If the latter, at what speed does this happen? Or does it dpepend on speed of PC?
P.S. I know that having the host and the guest OS sharing the same NIC is not good for security, this is not an issue for me as it is only a home network
