I screwed something up royally, but I want to understand how exactly I screwed it up. Bear with me because I'm not a networking expert.
Here is how my network is configured:
[HyperVHost] 126.96.36.199 /24, gateway 188.8.131.52 10.245.7.1 /24 [VM] 184.108.40.206/24, gateway 220.127.116.11 10.245.7.57 /24
What I was trying to do is upgrade a virtual machine using a third-party VHD. I was having difficulty getting this VM to obtain Internet access, even though it looked like the networking setup was the same as the old one, as far as I could tell. Thinking that maybe the fact that there was two network adapters was to blame, I made a desperate attempt and horrid mistake; I bridged the two connections.
Suddenly, I lost my remote desktop connection to HyperVHost, permanently.
I don't have physical access to this machine, so I'll probably have to ashamedly ask for help. What I'm wondering is what exactly bridging does and why bridging the connections on VM took down the connection for HyperVHost as well.
