Technologies WAN emulator-based Contoso branch office test lab consists of four computers on two separate subnets:
The CLIENT1 computer can connect to the Corpnet or Branchnet subnets.
This figure shows the computers and their connections to the subnets using a hub or switch. Because the Apposite Technologies LAN emulator is a physical device, you must use either physical computers
and switches or a combination of physical and virtual components.
If you are using Windows Server 2012 and the Hyper-V server role for your virtualization solution, you can configure the Apposite Technologies WAN emulator-based Contoso branch office in Hyper-V
on a single server as shown in the following figure (click on it for a larger version):
The key elements of this configuration are the following:
Note Although the Hyper-V server is connected to both subnets, it is not acting as a router between the Corpnet and Branchnet subnets. That is the function of the Apposite Technologies
LAN emulator. You configure IP routing in the Apposite Technologies WAN emulator-based Contoso branch office test lab so that all IP packets flow through the WAN emulator.
To build out the Corpnet subnet in Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V, do the following:
To build out the Branchnet subnet in Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V, do the following:
