    Admin and CC3 netowrk on 1 machine.

    Hi all,
    We have 2 independent networks here on admin and one cc3. All staff are on admin and all kids are on cc3. myself and the other technicians here all have 2 pc's (one for each). to save on space and costs my boss has asked to investigate using vmware to have both networks on 1 PC.

    He has suggested having the host machine on the admin and curriculum on as a vm. Obviously 2 NIC will be needed.

    Is this the best way to acheive and is it as easy as i think.

    Or you could be on a VLAN with routing to both networks.

    Either way your gonna have to make sure that you are not routing unwanted traffic between the networks.

    You could also dual boot the machines.

    Are they physically separate networks?

    You could have a virtual machine on the host, there should be no problems with that to answer your question.

    Ah right thats not so bad as if you do have to network cards you can setup a virtual network thats bridged to the NIC the VM Needs to be on, and obviously the other NIC would be used for the HOST which will already be on the other network.

    I think thats how it would be, or something along those lines
