My setup - standard home setup , router on 192.168.0.1 and all host on that network
VMware workstation host 192.168.0.50
1 x ESXi 6 hosts with ip 192.168.0.200
I can't get the ESXi host to talk to anything. The network editor always seems overly complicated with it's hundreds of configuration options. For gods sake all i want is to get the dam ESXi host talking to other hosts on my home network. With Hyper-V i add a virtual switch and point it to a NIC, and I'm done, none of this crap about NAT, Bridge, Share, DHCP, no wonder people are moving to MSFT.
If anyone can point out where I'm going wrong I'd appreciate it.

or is your ESXi 6.0 host a physical host ?
Hyper-V is a Type 1 Hypervisor, VMware Workstation is a an application installed on a Host, which is a Type 2 Hypervisor.
It's really like comparing apples and pears, unless you install ESXi on bare metal!
So I assume this ESXi is installed as a virtual machine, and therefore it's comparison would be to install Hyper-V also in a VM, under VMware Workstation.
Anyway back to your issue ?
