comment Can I browse a folder which resides in a virtual machine from the host machine?
It's already off. But now I have some connectivity, because I can see http://<IP> with IE on the host. I'm now getting a Logon failure with \\<IP>\<share name>, which may be because blank passwords are not allowed...anyway that's a different problem, so, query answered, thanks for your help.

The latter. Curiously, from the host I can ping the IP which the guest reports it has, but in the host I can't browse to \\<IP>\<share name> using Windows Explorer. I get "Network Error" with "unspecified error" as more details.

In the guest, the folder is Shared, and for now Full Control is given to Everyone on it. The VM's three network adapters are set to Host Only, NAT, and Host only. All are Connected. In the host, file and printer sharing is switched on for both "Home or Work" and "Domain". I still see nothing shared in Network. Where should I look?

Forgive me: where should the folder appear on the host? I can't see it. I am using VMware Player 5; are there any network adapter settings required in the VM Settings? Should the host adapters be set in any way (VMnet0, 1 and/or 8)? Thanks.
