A question was asked earlier today about networking configuration in VMware Workstation:
I have a vmware workstation VM 1 running on my desktop (physical host), on the host 2 I have an interface (eth0) which connects to a switch .
I would like to be able to speak from 1 to 3. How can I do this? Currently eth0 is in brdiged mode.
Since it's a desktop application, and not what you'd typically expect to see professionally when it comes to virtual networking, I would agree that this specific question is off topic.
However it brings up an interesting point. It has already been established that virtual networking is on-topic, but this question was considered off-topic, even though it was clearly about virtual networking. True, it was about a desktop application that doesn't represent the common deployed virtual networking best practices, but is that the deciding factor? Can we spend a little time more specifically defining where "the line" is with respect to virtual networking questions?
