hi guys

I've got a situation where I have a nested environment.

A Vmware Workstation 8.0 running Vmware Esxi 5.0. And on that, is running a Windows 2008 VM.

The IP address of my local PC is 192.168.1.10/24. With a gateway of 192.168.1.1.

The Esxi hypervisor has an IP of 192.168.1.15.

However, the Windows 2008 sitting on there has been given a 192.168.1.20/24 address with a gateway of 192.168.1.1 and it can't access the internet.

I don't know if there are settings I have to play with on the Workstation in order to get the nested VM access to the internet?

Any ideas on how to do this?

Many thanks
Yashy
