Use ESX, the virtual switches in ESX can have promiscuous mode
disabled on them, while I suspect the uplinks from the host to
the switches have it enabled, the guest VMs cannot access the
wire because it's blocked at the virtual switch level.


VMware server is really just a toy, I use it myself(at home)
but wouldn't use it in any situation where security or
performance was important.
