    Really strange guys. I have the same speed with an external switch than without. In fact, I have noticed that my DL speed will often exceed the 100 Mbps I am paying for when using external switch (goes up to 110 - 115).

    This is so odd.

    Now I tested my network speeds on 2 computers and one VM, using a different tool. They all reported pretty much the same speeds after multiple tests. Variance was less than 0.6% (2Mbit variance on 30 tests total, 10 each using WiFi, LAN and Hyper-V-Switch over WAN 350Mbit).


    Why do I get these numbers now? LOL!

    HAHAH! And now when I touched the network configurations, I can't remote manage my VMs from another Hyper-V Manager anymore. Can't get it to work again....

    Somehow my Hyper-V got all tangled up and the default switch would not work anymore. I even installed a new vm, chose default switch - nope would not connect.

    In the end, partly out of mild desperation as I did not want to restore a Macrium image and all my vms (separate), so I uninstalled Hyper-V, reinstalled it and then it came up with error message saying config error with switch. I added the default switch back to the VM, and it now worked. I guess it was Hyper-V that got corrupted in some way, as all my vms work now.

    Hi there

    Open port 3389 on the VM ensure firewalls OK

    say NAT addr is 10.0.0.1

    then in your RDP this should work 10.0.0.1:3389

    Cheers

    As I can only use the default switch, I tried this and it worked fine. Do you know if the IP is dynamic or static?

    LOL, my Default Switch, isn't connected to anything. Has been like this since two Windows upgrades ago.

    I use a switch I have created myself, and it works like a charm. Only issue is that if I delete it and re-create it, the MAC address and device ID change, so all security settings gets reset and my VM can't be recognized as the same machine as before.

    But at least I can decide, which physical adapter on the host it uses, if at all.

    For advanced routing purposes, one can create a small Linux VM, with routing software (OpenWRT...etc.) and connect that to at least 2 switches, where the first one is connected to internet using preferred physical NIC and the other one is as a stand alone switch. Then Just configure your router VM to use the internet connected switch/NIC as a WAN port and the other switch/NIC as LAN/NIC. All other VMs then connect to Switch 2 and the Linux VM handles the NAT and routing. It is even possible to simulate a real router by adding more non internet connected switches to the router VM. :)

    I cannot rdp from my phone to vm.

    I can from host on pc containing the vms.

    The phone is on same subnet as the host pc.

    Any ideas why not?

    Hi there

    might be a silly answer but did you check if the phone was on your Internet or were you on the phone's 4G system. If not on your home (local) internet and LAN then it won't work from the phone's 4G address.

    I know you are experienced in this sort of stuff but even the most experienced people make mistakes with this type of stuff !! I've made really silly mistakes loads of times too !!!.

    Yeah I have done that before - phone is on wifi. I can rdp to host but not the vm. I cannot see any obvious reason.
