It would be great that, Internal Networking mode at least, supports VLANs. This would avoid creating as many IntNets as needed (V)LANs wich, with a maximum number of 8, can be rapidly limiting.

You can look at the following post for a scenario.

Thank you for this great piece of software

Do you mean 802.1Q VLANs with tagging ? Or something else?

And first, sorry for the late reply, every day work has kept me too far from virtualization fun last months...

Replying to Technologov:

Actually, yes, that's what I mean. It would be wonderfull if internal networking could behave just like a featureful virtual switch.

As an example, I came to need this feature because I wanted to build a virtual infrastructure learning/dev lab with a central switch and segmented in several networks based on 802.1Q VLANs.

Thanks for your interest Bests
