Experts,

Here is what I am trying to do, I am setting up a test environment for our inhouse application and I am trying to test the communication between three VM to validate a send job. I need one computer on our company network (172.28.32.10) the other VMs are also on the network using the physical machines NIC (35.11 & 35.12). I need the two VMs to talk to each other so I installed a second NIC on both VMs giving the the IP Addresses of (192.168.1.100 & 1.101) Subnet (255.255.255.0) Gateway (192.168.1.1) for both. My thinking is that the two VMs will talk using the second NICs with this configuration but it is not working. Can any help me with this and tell me what I am doing wrong---how can I make this work?

Normally, you will need to route the traffic between different networks?

so you would need a router, a virtual router can be installed and used in VMware vSphere.

I do not have ESX in this environment just workstations on Windows 7 Hosts. I don't have an additional router to configure...is this the only way to make this work?

VMware Workstation, can host a router.

I would route between sub networks.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
