Welcome to the Communiy - How do you have your networking configured for the VMs?

I have also moved the thread to a more appropriate forum -

Thanks for your reply.

the main problem is  network configuration. I can not find any solution in Vm networking for my senario Smiley Sad

I test bridging and also custom Vmnet.if use same Vmnet for example Vmnet3,  all virtual machines can talk with each others. and if use different Vmnets for each link,  vm1 can talk with one of them.

I really appreciate your help.

the IP address of vm1 is in the same range of other vms. for example 192.168.80.5.
