VMware makes mention of it being possible in the whitepaper the others specified, but in Windows, I have not yet found software compatible with either network driver that will allow this in Windows. It is possible with Linux using kernel level drivers, but we all know how Windows is about that. I KNOW I read somewhere that there may be super secret Intel NIC emulation in ESX...but that may have been in the ESX 3.0 beta forums. If VMware could emulate an Intel Pro adapter, it may be possible (Depending on the level of emulation) to use the ProSet drivers for VLAN tagging. I know I have been asking for this feature since time began and have yet to see it become a reality.
That is terrible news sherold...
Can anyone confirm this?
Is it impossible to do what I need in Windows?
Tkx for all the help guys.
I've heard about the, supersecret, Intel emulation since Wks 5.5? I think, but i've never actually used it.
My best suggestion would be to search the forums looking for the vmx setting to enable that mode.
PS: Maybe it was 5.0? not sure.... the beta's had it i think?

I too have been looking for VGT windows drivers, but have yet to see any...
I "solved"/worked around this by using two VM's, each with 3 nics, and connecting them together with routing... Not nice but the combination gives a 4 network soulution (1 nic from each VM is used up to do routing, so that only leaves 2 on each for real traffic/data). The VM can be a simple 4MB RAM floppy booted linux distro, so memory wise it't not too bad....
(I needed to demo a Citrix / CSG solution with a lot of networks, one even used 3 of these "routers"...)
