    Mapping Multiple NICs in VMWare-1.0.6


    I would like to map my 3 physical NICs to my Virtual interfaces (vmnet). I have 3 NICs connected on HOST machine going to different networks (DMZ, LAN, WAN).

    I added a Network interface using the Virtual Machine Setting and set it to "Bridge" mode but was unsuccessful to map it physically. Then I tried to "Custom: Specific Virtual Network" and set VMnet2 as interface 2. However, I still got both IP from my LAN ( network whenever I use DHCP on eth1. Setting eth1 as static via /etc/network/interface got "Destination host unreachable".

    Is there a way where I can set into bridge mode the 3 interfaces?

    Here's what i'm trying to do:

    NIC 1 (LAN) ---> Vmnet0 (Bridge) --->
    NIC 2 (DMZ) ---> Vmnet2 (Bridge) --->
    NIC 3 (WAN) ---> Vmnet3 (Bridge) ---> 202.xx.xx.xx

    Please help?

    You should be using bridge mode on all 3 interfaces. It sounds like you are going to perform routing on the guest OS. Check the cables and make sure they are leading where you think they are--that may be why dhcp is pulling the wrong address.

    I have seen a post in forum and it was mentioned there that I cannot do "brigde" to make this work. I am not sure if this is true because I haven't tested it personally.

    I'm quite sure I've placed the NICs properly to their corresponding network, it shouldn't be an issue.

    any thoughts?
