Windows Since its introduction at Microsoft's BUILD conference last September, Windows 8 has garnered a large measure of attention, especially with regards to the new Metro interface. The feature that intrigued me the most, however, was the inclusion of Hyper-V.

No NAT?

There's no NAT? What about Internet Connection Sharing, does that still exist for Windows 8? If so, that would work.

On Windows Server, you could setup NAT by installing the routing role on the host machine.

Not sure how it is on Windows client. Perhaps they're planning to make the integration available via a post-RTM install, like they did with XP Mode on Windows 7? But XP is going to reach end-of-life soon, so are they still making it available for enterprise customers?

Using ICS would work, but it's not exactly a great solution. All your guests that are configured for host-only networking would become connected. As far as I know, ICS also isn't configurable via group policy, or via the management console (If I'm wrong, let me know).
