NAT uses the host computer’s network connection NAT works with Ethernet DSL and computer s connection. Bridged networking configures your virtual machine as a unique identity on the network. The virtual machine and the host share a single network identity that is not visible outside the network. and they can communicate directly with the virtual machine. Bridged networking works with both wired and wireless physical host network cards. using a virtual network adapter that is visible to the host operating system. This approach can be useful to set up an isolated virtual network. Host-only (VMnet1): Creates a private network that is contained within the host computer. The virtual network adapter i th it l hi to that t k Th i t l t k d t in the virtual machine connects to the physical network adapter in your host computer. NAT can be useful when your network administrator lets you use a single IP address or MAC address. . In this configuration. you can use NAT to give your virtual machine access to the Internet or another TCP/IP network. separate from and unrelated to its host. Bridged networking makes the virtual machine visible to other computers on the network. allowing it to connect to the LAN that the host computer uses. the virtual machine cannot connect to the Internet.VMWARE VIRTUAL SWITCH OPTIONS (HIDDEN) Bridged (VMnet0): Connects a VM directly to the physical network.
