Recently I set up a few Hyper-V servers on my windows 8.1 (Pro) laptop. I connected all of them to a single virtual switch. Now I want to connect the virtual switch to the physical network (instead of creating an external switch for internet access) to solve 3 problems:
- I have to to use as few IP addresses as possible in my physical network at home
- If I connect to an external network directly, my VMs would get different IPs on any network I connect to (I dont use it at home only) and I need to have a static IP for my VMs.
- In my laptop there are 2 network adapters and I have to use both of them.
I already tried to share the connection of both physical adapters with the virtual switch but it didn't work because windows automatically disables the other one every time I try to share a second connection.
Is this possible on windows? If yes, what do I have to do?
