I"m building a Virtual Server - I'm in the process of building and ESXi box. My question is does the actual Virual Esxi server need to have a routable address in order for the Windows Servers built within (on) the box to get out to the WAN? In other words lets say I set the virual box to 192.168.5.1 255.255.254.0 192.168.5.254 - this is non - routable. If I build a server and give it an IP of 10.10.1.10 with and subnet 255.255.255.0 and gateway 10.10.1.254 (this would be a WAN routable address) will it work or will it be stopped because my actual ESXi box is not routable to the WAN?
