How to Setup a Virtual Machine with VMware and a VPN to Use Multiple IP Addresses at Once
Have you ever wanted to use two PC’s with two different IP addresses to provide a unique user experience on the internet? Perhaps you want to make two accounts on a particular website or forum or are banned on one IP address. If so, this tutorial will teach you to setup a virtual machine with VMware and a VPN to use multiple IP addresses at once. A Virtual machine is a virtual computer running in an emulated environment on your computer. Having one setup uses resources from your computers hardware, so make sure you have a decent computer.
Why would you want such a thing? Well, you could use it for malware testing, double your VPN’s for extra security, etc.
Let’s get started creating an environment for Multiple IP Addresses
Things we will need:
2. .ISO of the OS you want to install, a .iso is a virtual disk. For this tutorial, we will be using Windows.
3. OpenVPN – http://swupdate.openvpn.org/community/re…nstall.exe

3. Then right click on the OpenVPN GUI in the hidden icons of your notification bar and hit connect. After entering your username and password of course.

4. Connect to a workplace to set up VPN.
5. Use my internet connection.
