I'm running a PC with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit and a laptop with the same.
I have a Windows 2003 virtual machine, created in VMWare Workstation, running on the laptop. The VM currently uses NAT (If I switch to Bridged, without making any other changes, the VM cannot see anything).
From within that virtual machine, I can ping my PC. It gives results similar to this:
c:> ping marc-pc Pinging marc-pc.localdomain 192.168.1.101 with 32 bytes of data reply from....
And all seems well.
When I run ipconfig from CMD on the laptop's VM, I get:
Connection-specific DNS suffix: localdomain IP Address ... 192.168.239.129 Subnet Mask ... 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway ... 192.168.239.2
So, from my PC, if I try to ping 192.168.239.129
I get "Request Timed out".
Basically, the VM on the laptop can ping the PC, but the PC can't ping back.
How do I set up the VM on the laptop so that the PC can communicate with the VM?
