What is the option separate network for each client (automatic) in the Guest configuration screen used for?

If this option is activated, GuestGate will prevent the connected guest computers from accessing each other by assigning random TCP/IP network settings to the guest computers. In this mode each guest computer operates in its own network and therefore can not access any other device except for the Internet. Since this function is random, it is difficult for an attacker to know or guess which IP addresses the other guests have been assigned, making a hacking attempt more difficult. If you are concerned with the security of your guests or are worried about potential liability issues, you should activate this option (it is activated by default).
