Routing issue

Hi,

i need to access the internet so I can activate the trial version of Windows 2008 R2 virtual guest servers.

To simplify the situation, the following are two of the 5 virtual guest servers running inside ESXi 4.1 host server.

Member Server-2
Wireless interface: 192.168.1.54
S/M:                            /24
DG:                            192.168.1.154

LAN interface
IP: 10.0.0.21
S/M: /8
This virtual guest server is running on Windows 2008 Ent. Edi.

Virtual Guest  Server 3
Member Server-3
IP: 10.0.0.30
S/M: /8
DG: 10.0.0.21
DNS: 10.0.0.20


If I enable the "internet connection sharing from the wireless interface network, it will change the LAN ip address to 192.168.0.1. Without changing my class A network, to class C network, is there any other way for 'member server 3' to gain access to the internet via 'member server-2?

I use to do this from routing and remote access many years ago but this feature isn't available in Windows 2008 R2 edition?

Appreciate any input.

m$ servers used to use proxy server and isa for this and I think server 2008 r2 use threat management gateway or tmg

I end up installing ISA2004 in a virtual guest server, configured my proxy server for each virtual servers to access the internet.
