Setup network from Microsoft Virtual server 2005 R2
You can configure NAT on the host machine to share your local network with guest virtual machines so that they can be access Internet.With network address translation (NAT), you can configure one or more virtual machines to share the host operating system's Internet connection, as shown in the following table.
1.Install Microsoft Loopback Adapter on the host operating system
2.Enable Internet Connection Sharing on the physical network adapter that is connected to the Internet. Configure ICS so that the physical network adapter shares the connection with Microsoft Loopback Adapter.
3.Create a virtual network and configure it to use Microsoft Loopback Adapter
4.Connect one or more virtual machines to the virtual network that is configured to use Microsoft Loopback Adapter
DHCP server must be in the reserved IP list.An example:1. Host pc setting:Physical NIC: Realtek RTL8168/8111 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NICIP: 192.168.10.6subnet: 255.255.255.0Gateway: 192.168.10.1 DNS: 192.168.10.1
MS Loopback adapter is installed on the host pc. ICS is enabled on physical NIC and shares the connection with the loopback adapter.Loopback adapter IP: 192.168.0.1 (leave "default gateway" blank)
2. Guest virtual pc settingVirtual network setting:Start IP: 192.168.0.20End IP: 192.168.0.200DHCP server: 192.168.0.2Default gateway: 192.168.0.1
Note:a. You must leave 16 address as system reserved.For example, if your virtual network is 192.168.0.0, then the first available DHCP IP is 192.168.0.17.b. The virtual DHCP server's IP address must within the reserved IP range.
