    Vmware / VBOX Linux guests anyone got bridged networking

    Hi folks

    on WINDOWS 10 Hosts - current 1903 or later builds has anyone got a Linux VM with any kernel > 4.15 to run in Bridged mode with either VBOX or VMWARE.

    NAT works fine but I need Bridged as these VM's need to be acessible from the whole network
    Pity it's Bridged that's broken and not NAT.

    I've tested SUSE-LEAP, UBUNTU, FEDORA, DEBIAN and they all don't work with bridged networking.

    VMWare 15.1.0 or VBOX 6.0 neither work Grrrrh !!!!!!

    looks like I'll have to abandon Windows Hosts !!!!!

    Anybody got Bridged networking on these VM's using VBOX/VMWare stuff.

    Update -- seems it's broken on the editions of W10 Workstation edition -- reverted back to "Bog standard" W10 Pro and its working properly.

    Marking as solved.
