I have a developer computer with two physical network interfaces (NIC A and NIC B). I have VMWare workstation and several virtual machines in VMNet8 (NAT). I would like to connect my notebook to my computer in that way that my notebook is in the same network/subnet as my virtual machines, but also connected to the internet. So:
Internet -- (NIC A) -- COMPUTER ---- VMNet8 -------- VM1 | +------------- VM2 | +-- (NIC B) -- NOTEBOOK
How can I achieve that? It is important to have the notebook in the same subnet as the vm-s, and the internet should be accessable from the notebook. I use Windows 8 professional (64bit, all updates) and VMWare Workstation 10 (newest).
I have been trying bridging (Windows built-in, bridge VMNet8 and NIC B) since the middle of August (and still using that), but it is not working: DNS resolve is slow and sometimes doesn't finish. The problem stands even if there is no vm running, only deleting the bridge solves the DNS problem.
