I have two physical PCs and one VMWare image on the LAN. All are running Windows:

  • PC1: 192.168.0.4

  • PC2: 192.168.0.3

  • VMWare image (NAT): 192.168.64.7

PROBLEM:

I'd like for PC1 to be able to communicate with the VMWare image running on PC2.

SYNTAX: On PC1:

route -4 add 192.168.64.7 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.3 metric 2

RESULT:

The route addition failed: The parameter is incorrect.

Q: What exactly am I doing wrong?

Q: Is this even possible without taking the VMWare image's network adapter out of NAT mode and changing it to Bridged?

Thank you in advance .. PSM

bridged mode would be the super easy fix unless you have a reason not to have it on your local lan –  InChargeOfIT Mar 4 '12 at 7:25
    
Yup - bridged mode worked, and there's no down side with my particular LAN. Thank you! –  paulsm4 Mar 5 '12 at 16:02
