Installation of VMWARE ESXi proper way to set up network

Hi all,

I'm brand new to VMWare ESXi and trying to learn so please forgive me.

I have a new ESXi install on a dedicated server. My ISP has assigned the box a single static IP (xxx.xxx.238.26 ) and I have purchased a block of portable IP's (not tied to hardware) from them (xxx.xxx.224.16/28). I'm note sure if it makes a difference but they are each on a different VLAN.

I want to create a virtual server with an IP of: xxx.xxx.224.19

So I use the following settings in the guest OS:
IP:xxx.xxx.224.19
Subnet: 255.255.255.240
Gateway: xxx.xxx.224.17

What changes do I need to make to VMWare to make this scenario work?

My IP block is as follows:

ESXI Management Console (Hard Static IP)        yyy.yyy.238.26         

Available Portable Subnet              Total IP Addresses
xxx.xxx.224.16/28                      16
       
IP addresses in subnet xxx.xxx.224.16/28
xxx.xxx.224.16        reserved        Network address                 Note
xxx.xxx.224.17        reserved        Gateway address                 Note

xxx.xxx.224.28                               Note
xxx.xxx.224.29                               Note
xxx.xxx.224.30                               Note
xxx.xxx.224.31        reserved        Broadcast address                 Note

Thanks!

ESX has a mangement IP address and other than that it is a virtual switch. so whatever switch you plug it into its like connecting that virtual maching to that switch.
