Dear All,

I have Windows 2008 R2 with Hyper-V role enabled. I create two VM in hyper-V.

I need to ask; does there a way to configure the NIC in each VM to NAT and to get access to Internet throughout the Host NIC?

    Accepted Solution

    There's no NAT in Hyper-V.
    You can connect VM NIC to host card ("external" in Hyper-V) but it behaves like VM connected directly to your LAN.
