Vmware host only network with different subnet

I would like to have a communication between 2 VMs in VMware. I am running VMWare11
VM1 192.168.1.0 network  IP.192.168.1.10
VM2 192.168.1.0 network  IP.192.168.1.11
VM3 192.168.2.0 network  IP.192.168.2.10
VM4  192.168.2.0 network  IP.192.168.2.11

How to have connection between these VMs with out a layer3 hardware?

Your guidance is apprecaiated
Thanks

Since they seem to be on a different subnet you cannot make them communicate with eachother without either using routing or expanding the subnet to 255.255.0.0 (or similar)...  

Have you thought about using something a small software virtual router? Something like FREESCO

I have seen this FREESCO
but I could not setup as a VM
Even I could not login as I am not sure about default username and password
I tried below passwords
admin  admin
admin vmware

The user name and password should be following, but just for the ovf one mentioned in the link below:

Username: Admin Password: vmware
And for the shell login: Root/vmware

There should be an ovf downloadable here, this way you can deploy it ready for configuration.

For configuration you can find some more info here

But basically you configure the first network as gateway (e.g 192.168.1.1) for the first subnet IP.192.168.1.10, then create a second network for 192.168.2.x ... With as gateway 192.168.2.1 for example.

You could also use Monowall.

or you could trial Vyatta

http://www.brocade.com/launch/vyatta/

which has been acquired by Brocade!

I configured 2 networks 192.168.1.x and 192.168.2.x
But still I cannot ping the next subnet.
I can reach upto the gateway.
i.e. from server 192.168.1.10    I can ping 192.168.1.1  but I cannot ping 192.168.2.1

it's not routing...I detail the entire process here in this EE Question

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Active_Directory/Q_28551787.html

Make sure you set this!

Trust local network 1 YES (important!)

Handy reference from Andrew, saves me from redoing it :)

There's also this site, but I think you'll get there by using Andrew's post above.

the easiest method, would be to re-download the flp again.

I'm not sure what the no such file or directory, errors are coming from.

Can you send me a URL to download the FLP?
If yes please let me know how to restore flp

I could not find the flp to restore the config.

You just delete the one you deployed earlier and re-import the Freesco OVA, or am I missing the clue :)

That's correct, that's how you do it.

Ended up configuring Vyatta
These are the command I used.


configure
set interfaces ethernet eth0 address 192.168.1.1/24
set interfaces ethernet eth1 address 192.168.2.1/24

Tag that vmnetworks in your network cards in the VMs
i.e.create 2 VM networks
seems like Freesco is little bit difficult/confusing.
