Hi everyone, I am wondering if it is possible to get 2 different IPs one on the physical machine and a different one for the VMware guest. In this case I am using the AOL/AIM dialer which assigns a stable IP for region-specific usage to US only services. Once connected, an US-based IP is assigned until you log off.
I would like to know how to get both host and guest to get assigned a different IP from this proxy connection, all through one physical connection to the router, or if need be through different physical connections. The machine has 2 network cards.
My physical devices:
- Cable modem -> Router (wrt54g w/ dd-wrt firmware) -> PC connection1 (DHCP, fixed IP through mac ID)
Pretty standard setup there. I have another router lying around (wrt54g2 /dd capable) that can be hooked up if necessary.
- Windows 7 Ultimate x64
- VMware Workstation 8 (bridging)
Thank you and have a good day.
