I have two Windows XP virtual machines running on Windows 7 Virtual PC. Both are connected to the "Internal Network" network adaptor.

I can't ping one VM from the other. How can I get this to work?

I'd first suggest examining the settings of the Windows Firewall on each of the systems.

Second, are you sure that the Win 7 Virtual PC allows this?

VPC does allow this, the adaptors have to be both set to Internal though. Firewalls is probably the cause. Nice rep (1337)! – HaydnWVN Feb 19 '13 at 11:28
