  • How to setup private/public networks on VMWare

    Like to connect one NIC card to a public switch so everyone can access that server, and another NIC connects to a private switch (network) to access the private network. Right now after install ESXi 4, only the pubic link works. Anything I need to configure in VMWare to make it work? Thanks! -Steve
