VMware vNICs Workstation - Capturing RTP traffic
Posted on 2009-07-15
I have a requirement to provide a test virtual machine that has two vNICs. One of these vNICS will pass TCP traffic as normal for LAN connectivity and the other will be used to scan for RTP traffic (Voice recording software - capture all phone calls). In order for RTP traffic to pass to the virtual machine i'm assuming I need to do some configuration on the actual host machine which, as current, has one true NIC.
What do I need to do to allow the virtual machine to capture this traffic? How will RTP traffic pass through the host machine (running VMware workstation) through the virtual machine network adapter and into the vNIC on the virtual machine?
Please let me know if i'm not making it clear enough.
