Connect Virtual Devices in UNL/EVE to External Virtual Machines

You will need to connect your emulated virtual devices inside UNL/EVE to external virtual machines often if you want to connect Windows Servers with Active Directory for authentications etc. This is how I did it.

Now go to the Settings of the UNL/EVE virtual machine to where you customize the hardware.
Add a Network Adapter and connect it to the custom VM network of VMnet2..























Now go to the Settings of the external virtual machine (ex:- Ubuntu server) to where you customize the hardware.
Add a Network Adapter and connect it to the custom VM network of VMnet2..























Now you can connect EVE devices to the external devices through pnet clouds.
pnet0 is connected your 1st network adapter..
pnet1 is connected your 2nd network adapter..
pnet2 is connected your 2nd network adapter..

So in this setup, what should be used to connect outside physical devices is pnet2..
pnet0 is used with NAT to connect to internet and to manage the UNL/EVE machine from host PC (laptop which the VMware Workstation is hosted) while pnet1 is used to connect physical devices which are connected directly to my physical Ethernet port.


So if the ip addresses of the UNL/EVE device and the external Ubuntu server are in the same subnet, everything will be ok..
