Inside a VM and can't get out to internet RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a vm that has a private ip of and a gateway of The physical NIC on the host that this is attached to has an ip of and the same gateway as above. I am able to ping from the VM to the host NIC and vice versa but cannot get an internet connection on the vm NIC even though the host nic can. What am I missing? Working with Hyper-V 2008R2

  • Hi 

    Ensure that the Vswitch is configured as external and assign the internet connected NIC to the External Vswitch.

    Assign DNS for all the VM and HOST

  • Virtual switch was assigned as external and since this is a private IP range for single purposes can i just add the IP's to the host file?
