I want to make a network interface only usable for a VMware Guest-System, and not for the Host System (the network is considered unsafe, and might be dangerous for the host). Under Linux this is pretty easy, after using 'ifconfig eth1 up', the interface has no ip-address(which imho makes the host system unreachable over eth1), but can be configured from the guest-system.
My Question is how to do something similar under Windows XP as host system. The network interface only works if activated, and the network-gui forces me to either use dhcp or configure an ip-adress. I want to do neither.
Used vmware-version: vmware workstation 6.5
