I want this network to be able to reach the Internet, but not be configured to See my physical newtork. my LAN is 10.0.0 and I want my Virtual Lan to be on 10.10.0.

I want to create a completely seperate domain running virtually.

If you use NAT, your VMs will have Internet Connectivity, but will be isolated by NAT network on your VMware Workstation.

So if I set all my VM's to NAT then they Will Not be connected to My WorK domain in anyway then?

What i dont want is to configure a new " TEST " domain with AD DS and DNS ect, and for it to be seen on my Work Domain

Thanks

That's correct, the network is Network Address Translated, so traffic can leave your internal network, e.g. for Internet Access, but no traffic will go into your internal network.

It will not be seen on your work network, because traffic has to flow each way.

NAT blocks this.

Just like your router connected to the Internet, is NATTed, so your internal network is protected from the internet, with a single IP Address.

Could I then for Instance add an additional Virtual Card to My VM Domain Controller, and then configure it to my work domain IP config , and create a Forwarder so that the Domains Could see each other but conflict?

What I want is to be able to see my Work domain, from my "test" domain, but for the 2 of them not to conflict in any way

NAT will work one way, and you can use Advanced NAT configuration for traffic to flow if required.

Yes, you could do that with additional NIC, set to bridged.
