The 4 steps to setting up a network and VPC.
- Add the MS Loopback Adapter to your physical machine, with a static IP Address (this is actually harder to do than it sounds; it took me about half an hour to find how to install it).
- Configure all my virtual machines with 3 network cards: One tied to the wireless card, one tied to the ethernet card, and one tied to the loopback adapter.
- Configure the first two cards with DHCP, and the last one with a static IP different from the host machine's one.
- Add entries in the host files of all machines using the static ip addresses to enable quick name resolution.
