    Hi @llabake,

    Yes you can, but you have to be aware of the following:

    1. Your mac needs to have enough physical CPU, memory, and disk to accommodate the minimum CPU, memory, and disk requirements for the two local VMs in addition to the needs of the native OS.
    2. The hypervisor of choice needs to allow you to also manage the private network of the VMs to avoid IP addresses from the range 192.168.0.0/16 and 10.96.0.0/12.
    3. The hypervisor should also allow you to enable all inbound traffic to your VMs, from all sources, all protocols, to all destination ports.

    Regards,
    -Chris

    Hi @chrispokorni,

    Thank you for responding. I would use a VirtualBox

    Hi @llabake,

    For each VirtualBox VM ensure one bridged network adapter is enabled, with promiscuous mode allowing all traffic.
