I am using Windows 8.1 through a boot camp partition on an Apple PC and I have installed VMware Workstation. I have OS X Snow Leopard as guest OS within the working Virtual Machine.

I am using a cheap netsetter which has a driver that is only available for OS X. How can I share my netsetter connection to my host Windows 8.1 from my vmware guest OS 'Snow Leopard` so I can update the software contained within the host OS.

  • I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's about running OS X in a virtual machine on non-Apple hosts, which is against the EULA and not supported. – slhck Feb 15 '15 at 18:11
  • Hey slhck..,sir I'm really sorry for not mentioning that I'm using apple pc itself.I had installed windows 8.1 along mac and I want to share the internet connection which is only available in mac os with windows os by using vmware.SO my question is not probably off-topic and also not against the EULA.I need this urgently because I need to update my antivirus to get rid all malwares.Please help me sir.. – Grigin Feb 17 '15 at 12:40
  • So are you running Windows through Boot Camp? Which Mac are you using? – slhck Feb 17 '15 at 13:10
  • How do you have malware on a virtual machine that doesn't have an internet connection. – Ramhound Feb 17 '15 at 16:57
