set up virtual machine to configure a new firewall

     In order to set up a new firewall, you typically use a computer on the same subnet.  For example, the new firewall is configured with, so you can use a notebook on the same sub net, say, and connect a network cable between the two.  Now,one can open a browser on the notebook and go to and get the web GUI for the firewall.

     I don't have a spare notebook so I want to create a virtual machine (VMWare Workstation) on my existing desktop to help me configure the firewall.  I want to connect the new firewall to a switch or router on my home network and use this virtual machine to reach the web GUI.  I have not been able to make this work.  Can anyone provide guidance on how to configure the NIC on the virtual machine to allow for this?
