I have two desktops each running a copy of  VMware workstation 8. we can call then PC1 and PC2... here's what I am trying to do...

On PC1 - I have vCenter running as a VM and 1 vyatta router.

I have vCenter server running bridge so it communicates with the host PC1.

On PC2 - I have 4 vms. server 2008 DC, SQL server, 2 esxi host and 2 netapp servers.

I have all the VMs connecting to a custom internal network using vnet2.
using a 10.0.0.0 subnet.

PC2 - all vms are able to join the domain and communicate fine. (obviously)

PC1 - cannot communicate with PC2 VMs.

SO I configured the Vyatta router on each workstation - On PC2 I created two Ethernet ports for the router and setup one to the host DHCP and the other to vnet2 DHCP so the router is now able to ping both host and internal VMs. (192.168.1.1 and 10.0.0.1)

Now I want the VMs on PC2 to communicate with my VM on PC1.

I know I can accomplish this by allow all vms to use bridge and take the IP from my physical router. keeping all on the 192.168.1.0 subnet. But I am doing this to learn. So I am making it more complicated.... So in a nutshell I need the VMs to communicate with all vms on both computers.

Every "machine" in the network will have to have a route to the gateway router for each network. You can use a single router, but it mush have a direct path to each network.
