I'm running Qemu on Windows and I can't connect to the ESXi guest and can't ping the host network gateway from the ESXi guest. I disabled all other network interface on Host machine except the internet connecting Ethernet interface. I've spent like 2 days and still can't get it working.

Any idea how to resolve the issue?

I'm using the following command to start the guest.

qemu-system-x86_64 -boot d -hda esxi.img -m 4096 -cpu Westmere -machine q35 -smp cpus=2,cores=2 -accel tcg -netdev user,id=net0,hostfwd=tcp::2022-:22,hostfwd=tcp::8080-:80 -device e1000,netdev=net0

enter image description here is the router gateway. is the host machine IP address.

Esxi guest can't ping either.
