Customers may want to create guest networks with Kerio Control Virtual Appliance (VMware) installed on their laptops. This article shares the process of creating a LAN, WAN, or a guest network with Kerio Control installed on a laptop.
The following network topology is required:
You can complete this setup with at least two laptops. If there is no Access Point (AP), replacing it with a laptop should not change anything.
Follow these steps with the Kerio Control application installed on Laptop1:
- Assign a static IP (for example, 10.10.10.1) to the Ethernet interface on Laptop1. You can assign this IP directly from options available on the Windows network adapter page.
- Create another network interface from VMware that is bridged to this Ethernet interface. This will be used as the guest interface in Kerio Control.
- Update the default bridged network to use the Wi-Fi card.
For more clarity, refer to the following video about this process:
You can obtain the IP address of Laptop1 from Laptop2 and ping google.com without any problems.
