good evening everyone
my ip address on my LAN physical PC is 192.168.0.whatever and when i log into my virtual machine that is running win server 2008 my ip address and gateway are both 10.#.#.#
Why is this?
say for example i wanted to download torrents from my VM, would I be able to be tracked? Or am i like using a proxy of some sort?

You are using the Host adapter for the software. You'd need to change it to Bridged if you want it on your network. If you don't the host will allow it online, just can't share anything on your network. Well you could if you set up a route but it's easier to just switch it to bridged and give it a static IP from your home network.


I believe it would be because in the end it is still using your WAN IP.
