Configure Internal and Private Networking for Hyper-V Virtual Machines

,

In the previous tutorial, we went through how to setup “External Network” to access the internet on Hyper-v client machine. Now, we will explore how to create Internal and Private virtual switches and what is the use of them. A virtual switch is also bound to the host server even though it does not correspond to a physical device. This allows the host operating system to communicate with VMs across the virtual network. 

Use of the Internal & Private Hyper-V Virtual Switch

Internal Virtual Switch
The Internal virtual switch allows communications only between virtual adapters connected to virtual machines and the management operating system.

Private Virtual Switch
The private virtual switch allows communications only between virtual adapters connected to virtual machines.
