    VMWare Help Required

    Good Morning Everyone,

    a little help please as I have not used VM before at any level, I have downloaded VMWare Server 2.0.2
    and setup a Windows 2008 R2 server withe basic roles i.e. DNS\DHCP\AD\File Services it all runs fine with no issues.

    I then setup a Windows XP Client and a Windows 2008 R2 Member Server which will be used to run SQL 2012, both the client
    and SQL Server have connected to the domain fine and picked up a dhcp address, but neither can connect to the internet.
    I have tried the internet on the DC and its fine, I am playing with this at home at thee moment I might add and not at school
    so am currently playing with the following IP details on the DC;

    IP Address :-
    Subnet :-
    Gateway :- (this is my Virgin Media Router)
    DNS :-

    DNS is listening on :-
    forwarders :- & which it has resolved

    Am I missing something as to why the clients cant connect to the internet, both my xp client and SQL Server are showing up
    in DNS, DHCP and AD ???

    You might be better off using VirtualBox (free) or VMware Workstation (not free).

    VMware Server is discontinued and hasn't been updated in over 3 years, so you are bound to come across some issues with it.
