NLB and VMXNET 3 Adapters Preventing Shared IP Responses

Sometimes in the attempt to use a Network Load Balancing on Windows Servers on VMWare, the VMXNET 3 adapter does not seem to allow proper responses on the Load Balanced IP address. Switching to another adapter, ex. E1000E, everything starts to function properly.

Hopefully this helps someone else.

Example services: IIS.
