Method to block traffic between virtual machines on the same vSwitch

To block traffic between virtual machines on the same vSwitch, you can separate the virtual machines by using different subnets, such as different VLANs.

When VLANs are used, the traffic must exit the vSwitch to the network device that handles the VLAN identification.

After VLAN identification is complete, the traffic is routed back to the vSwitch.

Additionaly you can use vShield Zones to create trust zone between 2 or more networks…
