I'm evaluating some software solutions, so a simple "yes" or "no" would be nice. I'm having some issues getting a simple answer with my own searches...
The configuration would work like this: I have a VM (guest OS shouldn't matter), running in VMWare Workstation on an MS-Windows OS host. The host can access a proxy server (a SOCKS or HTTP proxy) to connect to the internet if it needs to.
Can I configure the VMWare VM container to use the proxy server for all its internet and network access, such that the guest OS has no idea it's going through a proxy? It simply sees the internet directly.
Thus have VMWare do the proxy handling, instead of the host OS or the guest OS.
