VM Network Properties
VMs can have up to 8 network interface cards (NICs).
There are six different types of NICs to choose from. The OS installed in the VM must have
drivers for the selected NIC.
Each NIC can be connected to the network in one of three ways:
NAT. NAT is the simplest way to have a VM networked. The VM will be able
to access the Hosts network, but can not act as a server.
Bridged. The VM will be directly connected to the same network as
the Host running the VM. The "Bridged Interface" configuration setting on each Host specifies which of
the Hosts network interfaces will be used for bridging. VMs connected this way can act as
Virtual. Virtual networks are private networks created over your
Hosts physical network. Infinity support up to 50 different Virtual networks. Each Virtual
network acts as a network hub connecting all VMs of the same network number regardless
of the Host they are running on. The Hosts physical network must be able to pass multicast
