I installed Windows XP with VMware Fusion on my MacBook and while internet works, Windows can ping the Mac, etc. from the Mac or any other machine in the network we can not see the Virtual Machine. In between, I use bridged option and obtain the the VM's IP dynamically; tried also static assignment from the free addresses but the problem persisted.

Any ideas what is wrong?

Are the IPs you are receiving from your ISP or local to your network? –  Chealion Sep 16 '09 at 4:13

It must be an issue with Windows Firewall

Control Panel --> Windows Firewall --> Advanced --> ICMP Setting --> "Allow incoming Echo request"
