I have a VMK0 and a VMK1 on separate physical adapters vmnic0 and vmnic1 respectively.  VMK0 is 10.0.4.X and VMK1 is 192.168.10.X.  What do I need to do to get the class C to talk to the class A address?  

Please see attached file.

Okay, thanks for that.

So you want VMs to be able to route traffic between the networks 10.0.4.X and 192.168.10.X. ?

You would need to use a router, phsyical or you can set a VM as a router.

Both of these networks are on their own respective VLAN within the same switch/router.  From within the router I can ping each network.  My pc is on 10.0.4.x network and I ping 192.168.10.x by putting a static route on my machine.  However, from 192.168.4.100 I cannot ping the 10.0.4.x network even with a static route.  Not sure what I'm missing here.

Routing is missing.

What is doing the routing on your network?

Some switches can provide routing from one VLAN to the other.

that was it - I set the static route to hop to the vlan interface IP and that got me over to the other network.  Thanks so much hanccocka for your help.
