Here is my situation.
At work I have to use an old, slow XP machine for development. Suffice to say, it's painful to run Visual Studio on. I have asked my dev manager about upgrading, but of course, no money (obviously a completely false economy, but what am I going to do?)
I do, however, have an awesome Macbook pro with Windows virtualized on VMWare as my personal machine. I would love to be able to use this, but I can't join it to the domain (to access TFS, etc), and the support team do not seem interested in helping me out.
I'm wondering if it's possible for me to buy a cheap hub, connect both my Mac and my XP machine to it, and set up some kind of routing on the XP machine to forward requests from my Mac through the XP machine to the company network. However, my networking skills are pretty basic, so not really sure if this is feasible. (Ignore any potential violations of company policy at this point.)
Anyone know if this is possible?
Edit: I should mention that I have local administrator access on the XP machine.
