INTERNET CONNECTIVITY TO GUEST VM

Jump to solution

I have Win Server 2019 configured as a Guest on ESxi 6,7. Presently there is internet connectivity only via a public wifi. I have no other source for internet. I access the ESXi host via a static IP.

How do I get internet connectivity on my Guest VM (Win Server 2019) using only these resources?

Rob,

What sjesse says is true. I Guess you could still hack Your way by using PCI passthrough to get the guest VM to see a wifi card through VT-d. Not for the faint hearted, but you may get it to work.

Esxi does not support wireless cards so you can't do that. If your wired connection can not connect to the internet you either need to fix that or move the server.
