In my Network tab, I always have 4 VMware devices present.
Please see the attached screenshot.
I know what the ones marked in green are. They’re the virtual adapters that exist on my the 2 virtual subnets that VMware creates for host-only networking and NAT. I’ve labelled those 2 devices in Glasswire and they remain constant.
The other 2 devices, marked in red, I’m not clear about. They don’t correspond with any virtual network adapters visible on my system, and I can’t even see them if I run ‘ipconfig /all’. But the thing that’s annoying is that they keep reappearing in Glasswire. After each reboot, I’m alerted that they are “new” devices that have connected to the network. This also means I can’t label them, because each time they come back as new devices that are unlabelled.
Is there anything that can be done about these 2 mystery ones marked in red? Either to not detect them as network devices (which I’m sure they shouldn’t be detected as anyway), or some way to choose to ignore them completely?
