    Default Virtual Machine with seperate IP address

    Hey there,

    I am a programmer for an Australian company that does a lot of its work remotely. We look after the records of multiple government bodies as well as many private companies. With the release of windows 8 a lot of companies have started to move towards the new operating system. This is great as I am a firm believer in windows 8 and Microsoft as a whole however windows 8 doesn't agree with a few of our systems. This is old news though.

    At the moment I have taken on a project to use new systems and alter existing systems to work with windows 8 so that our clients have smooth transitions.

    My company has purchased multiple windows 8 devices for me to use to get this up and running. At the moment I am trying to set up a virtual network which is being more difficult than I had first thought.

    At the moment I am trying to use hyper-v to create a virtual server. This is the easy part. The hard part is assigning this virtual server its own ip address. I am able to see the virtual server on the network but it has the same Mac and ip addresses as the computer running hyper-v.

    I need a separate ip address on the LAN to allow my port forwarding to work. Does anyone have any suggestions or even a comment to lead my in the right direction?

    Cheers,
    JohZant

    Are you using just the one installed NIC on your host system to use the Hyper-V. If so try adding a 2nd NIC and assign that to the VM in Hyper-V. Then you should be able to change the IP address on the VM Hyper-V setup.

    Bass's recommendations sounds good. If you come to think of it, the physical machine and the virtual machine is sharing the same network card. So, the network location will be the same for both environments. Try installing a second network card and assign it to the Hyper-V from within the virtual machine. Good one Bass!

    Thanks guys. I did have this thought. I was just hoping that there might be a quick thing that I may have missed.

    The guys are right, Joh. That's the only way you can get away from it using/sharing the host machine hardware.

    Just thought I would update you all on this.

    It is very possible to do this, and in fact very easy. I was trying to get a bit too technical with it.

    When in hyper-v manager, right-click on the VM that you are wanting to have a different IP address and go into settings. Click 'add hardware' and add a legacy network adapter. Enable VLAN and then you are ready to go.

    Thank you all for your help though.
