VMware Workstation Custom Specific Virtual Network; From virtual machine settings installed on the VMware Workstation is able to change.

This process is simple quite. If we want to examine its basic logic, it’s almost same to the VMware Host Only network connection settings. The only difference, while creating a better network design, we identify separately. And then, we can make them communicate the networks having different Ip blocks by placing a server or router into the network platform.

First of all, before entering the detailed network design, understanding the basic logic is better. Understanding these settings good, it provides to us the big simplifies for the complex network designs.

Virtual Network Editor Default Settings

When we have looked at these settings in the Virtual Network Editor program, we see it’s selected VMnet1 Host Only. When we have run two the virtual machines on the VMware Workstation, and when selected the Network Adapter option of this virtual machines, Let’s see what do they make?

After have opened the VMware Workstation program, Let’s change the network adapter option of the Client1 and Client2 virtual machines.

The client1 virtual machine network adapter setting;

The client2 virtual machine network adapter setting;

Let’s see whether they communicated by running virtual machines, according to as it’s set up the network adapter setting of the virtual machines.

It’s a ping process from client1 virtual machine to client2;

It’s a ping process from client2 virtual machine to client1.

It’s successful the ping process between the client1 and client2 virtual machines. Let’s go into detail here, If we create a new virtual machine on the Virtual Network Editor program, and if we set up the VMnet2 as Host Only, or ıf we select the VMnet2 from Custom Specific Virtual Network in the client2 virtual machine network adapter, this virtual machines won’t communicate.

Because, for it takes the Ip address from a different Ip block, it needs a router in the network platform. Routers will communicate after typing the static route commands. Another solution is, they will communicate when it’s done the routing process by adding one Windows Server 2008 R2 or higher version on the network platform.

I want to give you a little note. It’s identical the VMware Host Only network connection settings with the VMware Custom Specific Virtual Network settings. Of course, it’s identical when we set up the same the settings of the VMnet’s in the virtual network adapter settings. Accordingly, they can’t arrive our physical network and they can’t connect to the Internet.

  Final Word

I tried to tell you the basic logic of the VMware Custom Specific Virtual Network subject. Here, there is a little thing to be noted. If it’s selected the VMnet in the client2 virtual machine by creating an another VMnet, this two virtual machine won’t communicate with each other.
