Question bridge two NIC's in virtual OS with NIC's in physical machine

I have a Debian wheezy running in VMware Player 4.0.1. I have specified in VMware Player Virtual Machine Settings that I want to have two network adapters in virtualized OS. My end goal would be to bridge one of those virtulized NIC's with eth0 in my physical machine and the second virtulized NIC with tap3 in my physical machine. Am I correct, that I should configure /etc/vmware/networking file? At the moment it looks like this:

add_bridge_mapping eht0 1
add_bridge_mapping tap3 2
answer VNET_1_DHCP yes
answer VNET_1_DHCP_CFG_HASH 9CC13C0717831EB388B45F7DE825243FF588BB46
answer VNET_2_NAME Bridged-2
answer VNET_2_INTERFACE tap3
Am I way off the track?
