VMware Tutorial For Beginners | Part-7 | VMware Networking, Bridge, Nat, Host-Only Network

In this video i have described VMware Networking Details, Bridge, NAT, Host-Only Network. We have mainly 3 type of networking to assign to virtual machines. bridge networking, nat and host only. we have other two option custom and lan segment also. I have elaborately described with diagram how these 3 type of networking works. bridge network add’s virtual machine to the physical network, nat shares the host ip with the virtual machines, and in the hosts-only network, virtual machine will be isolated from physical network, it will only be able to communicate with other virtual machines. on the bridge network vm’s are directly connected to the physical network, they are also treated like physical systems, they can talk to router and get internet connection just like other physical systems. on the nat network, virtual machines get connected to an internal router maintained by vmware workstation, all the vm’s got an internal gateway and traffics are natted to go outside, so, nat networked virtual machines subnet and physical network subnet are different. on the hostonly network, virtual machines can communicate only among themselfs, the traffic from the host only network are not routable, so they will not reach internet. this is completely seperate network only for the vm’s. in custom network we can define new host-only and bridge networking, we can create multiple host-only network and if we have multiple lan card we can create new bridge network on each lan card. and on the lan segmant, it is just like physically separate network, vm on one segment cannot talk to vm on another lan segment, I have explained and demonstrated in detail vmware workstation networking in this video. this vmware tutorial for beginners series is for the good start of the network and system administration practices, we all need a good vmware home lab for the practice, step by step i have described most of the feature of vmware workstaion here in this series. hope you will enjoy !!
