VLAN Tag 802.1q not working for vmware host-only adapter

    Question

  • I want to connect several VM's mainly Cisco router to same network adapter (vmnet1 host-only network adapter) and want to pass multiple VLAN's as Tagged. I am able to achieve this requirement through bridged network adapter but unable to do so through host-only adapter. I am using Windows 7 as main OS and VMware Workstation 11.

    I have gone through several tech forums but unable to find answer for it. Though in multiple forums one statement was common that Windows will strip the VLAN information when packet received/transmits through network adapter.

    I would really appreciate if anyone can help me with this.
