Hi Qassim
 On your All-in-one-vm desktop, you can  find  EmulatorUserGuide.pdf which explains how to create custom topology that suits your requirement.   you can also find shortcut called “Start  3node”; that one starts up in background vmcloud and emulates network. you can find topology of 3node in the pdf file. The
terminals for all three gateways are displayed on the desktop and network
connectivity should work between them.
Thanks and Regards,

maybe i was not clear in my earlier post...what i need is to connect NEW interface of the guest Ubuntu to E
XTERNAL testset equipment.  The AIO comes with two interfaces eth0 and is NAT'ed and the other is host-only.  I need to add additional interface eth2 that is bridge to my host(also Ubuntu) ethX.  So my question is within the AIO, how do i bridge this new eth2 to one of the 3node VM ?

There is a file on the desktop called the EmulatorUserGuide.  This explains (in technical detail) how the vmcloud infrastructure works.  You can use this to create your own custom topology (complete with external assets) or extend the 3node XML file.  Can you look through this and see if it helps you connect your external network?  Alternatively, it's very easy to route external subnets into and out of the VM provided you're okay with NAT.
