comment Why multiple PTR records in DNS is not recommended?
I know it's not what you asked, which is why I asked this via a comment, not as an answer. :-) You never mentioned what application you're talking about. You'd do well to be more explicit that you're talking about the context of outgoing e-mail, which is what @kasperd is speculating.

Why do you want to have multiple PTR records for a single IP address? I can't think of a reason that would make sense to do.

comment Installing VirtualBox and restricting NAT and Bridged Network Adapters for Corporate Security
I hear where you're coming from. But there's a rather big problem with your plan, which is that locking down network access from the virtual machines involved will be difficult at best, and there is no clear path to follow (as evidenced by your question), introducing risk. Your suggested method of running the VPN client in the host machine and then bridging the VPN adapter has me dubious regarding to whether it would work. Since you seem intent on wanting to do an end-run around your IT people, I've edited the post, with a similar approach that doesn't require IT to be involved at all. :-)

Please post the contents of /tmp/rules.debug. Sounds like you have a stray NAT rule.

Glad you got this to work. :-) I deleted the part from my answer regarding the Intel drivers (since it turned out to be a red herring, as well as the speculation regarding that chapter in the page.)

comment pfSense Cluster not working with Manual NAT
I'n seeing a lot of description of your setup but nowhere you are writing what is actually not working as you expect. As for the source ip of the openvpn client, I think you can set that in the OpenVPN client settings by choosing the interface IIRC. Please update the question to clarify what you feel is wrong

comment Why is mail going to an old mailserver after I changed the MX records?
Can you please post the headers for an e-mail appearing in the old server, as well as the headers for an e-mail appearing in the new server?

comment Hyper-V vlan tagging
Oh, I thought you were actually trying to use the Intel drivers to configure VLANs as well. In that case, using the Intel drivers should work. The information here might be useful: intel.com/support/network/sb/CS-030993.htm If for no other reason than confirming what we already know.

comment Hyper-V vlan tagging
As I said, try using the stock Windows drivers for the NIC on the Hyper-V host machine, rather than using the Intel drivers with VLAN support. I know it sounds counterintuitive, but because Hyper-V is doing its own thing with VLANs, having the Intel drivers do it's own VLAN thing as well may stop it from working the way you expect. Let us know how that works out. :-)
