Hey Guys,

Pretty simple really, I've got a Mac Mini which I have on VLAN-5 on my Home Network, different VLANs get routed through different DNS, different VPNs and have varied levels of access. I'm going to be setting up a VLAN that needs to run on the Mac Mini on VLAN-5, but needs to actually be on VLAN-7

Any ideas how I can configure this with VMWare Fusion?

Thanks

Chris

At first I was going to say this is only possible in VMware workstation and higher products, but apparently you can do it in Fusion.

It's not through the GUI though.

Hi,

Thanks for everyones help on this, I ended up deploying an ESXi Server to achieve this.
