Vmware Esxi 5


Recommended Posts

I'm running a VMware esxi 5 server that I want one of the VMs to be a router/firewall (Untangle) for the network. I am thinking I have to bridge the adapters to that VM but I can't figure out how in the Vsphere client. I did find one video where he doesn't do anything, and just makes the VM have 4 NICs and just installs the firewall OS. Has anyone seen any sites that could help? Or am I going about this the wrong way, and I don't need to bridge them the way I am thinking. It's going to need to be the router for both the VM machines and the rest of the physical network.

If you set your VM interface to bridge it will place, the vm on the same subnet as your LAN. Furthermore, I have found that you can also change your NIC settings through Vmware CLI.
