I have four test computers connected together in a small test network (as shown below). Two of the computers are in ESXi and two physical computers. They are all configured with the same IP address used by the customer.
The problem is that I want to access the computers from my work computer on the office network (which is on a completely different IP range). I want to access them via Remote Desktop and I want to also be able to access the office server from the test computers. Is this possible with simple and inexpensive means? I have no permission to change in the office network.

It is possible to add an extra virtual machine to the virtual network in ESXi with dual NICs. One for the test network, and one for the office network. I can also replace the physical switch I use for the testing network if it would help.
