VMware Workstation 8 – WAN simulation (Awesome feature alert)

Just found an awsome feature…… a bandwidth and interface error generator for each virtual NIC.  Great if you are doing Proof of Concept testing for high latency or even 3G simulated links.

To configure, locate the virtual NIC properties and press ‘Advanced’

VMw-Net2

Its truly an awsome product that amazes me each time I try to do somthing
