Hi guys, I have a beginner's question I'd like to ask.
I want to set up my own home lab on VMware workstation 16 and something doesn't add up.
First, my simple network topology is the following:
Background information: I saw somewhere that I should go to Virtual Network Editor and add a Vmnet with DHCP disabled with a 10.1.1.0 IP so it could be assigned to an additional interface for the PA VM and for the Windows 10 Network Driver.
So I created a VMnet3 with DHCP off and IP 10.1.1.0 and assigned it to the third Network Adapter (eth1/2) for PA VM and also for the Network Adapter of the Windows 10 machine.
All the above were completed, and still, I can't ping anything from my Windows 10 machine (not the interface, nor the internet). The Windows 10 machine is not visible on any traffic logs, and I'm pretty sure it's not reaching the network for some reason. I'm sure I'm missing something still, I just don't know what exactly.
YOUR HELP IS HIGHLY APPRECIATED.
