comment How do I run a VM within a VM with separate IPs accessible on a local network?
@Zoredache I need to replicate Administrator activity on the second VM via the GUI, not command line. There also can be no processes running or network connections established to the machine in order to accomplish this. It needs to appear to be a standalone box where a Administrator physically logs on and starts performing random administrative activities via the GUI. Does this make sense?

@heavyd Both VM's are in Bridged Mode with "Replicate physical network connection" checked.

comment How do I run a VM within a VM with separate IPs accessible on a local network?
@joeqwerty Ok so I have the first VM with IP address 192.168.162.1, the VM inside of it has IP address 192.168.162.2. Both have been statically assigned. I also regenerated the MAC addresses so that they are different since the 2nd VM was a clone of the first. On my physical Host machine I statically assigned IP address 192.168.162.3. What I want to be able to do is ping 192.168.162.2 from 192.168.162.3. However there is no response.

comment How do I run a VM within a VM with separate IPs accessible on a local network?
@Darth Android So yes, I have successfully ran a VM withing another VM using VM Player. I even successfully ran the Auto Hotkey script on the first VM which performed typical Administrative functions on the second VM which did not show up in the process list of the second VM. So that part I know I can do, and it works. However I'm currently doing it on my laptop, not the ESX server. My first VM only has 3GB of RAM and the second one is using 1GB of that RAM. I also assigned the first one 2 processors, then gave the second one 1 of those processors. It runs slow, but it runs.

comment What Can I do to Improve Cable Link/Signal Quality?
Thanks! Writing a paper on Improving Signal Quality and this really help me understand why Amplification can't increase Signal Quality unless it is done at the Signals point of origin.

My trainer basically told me he is leading me down a rabbit hole and although what I am trying to accomplish here IS possible. It's out of the scope of what he is trying to teach me at the moment which is sending data through one tunnel but receiving it through another tunnel or having the receiving end be another host entirely. So he has told me to do the same thing using FTP or Telnet instead of RDP so I'm gonna give that a shot and mark your answer as the correct answer for now as you did help clarify a lot of questions concerning this entire process. I appreciate it.
