question on networking...

from my experience with VB... they use a NAT'ed type of network interface for the VM's by default... is this still the case...?? i know you could setup a bridged interfaces for VM's but it is/was not a fun thing to get working when i played with it to test some servers...... with VMware's workstation and or server you can just selected it as an option.. vmware by default uses a bridged interface and you can select NAT or just internal as an option..

i will say this... if you have used VB it is easy to switch to VMware's server or workstation and/or vis-a-versa...... their UI's are pretty similar.. atleast the last time i tried VB..... maybe ill give it another shot soon...
