I have VMWARE loading an domain controller (Domain.Name is a windows 2003 server).
i setup vmware ethernet connectivity to use NAT. I login to that domain controller
and issue an ipconfig command in a dos prompt. it shows me an ip address.
I then switch to an dos prompt on my local xp workstation that is hosting vmware sessions and
then try to ping that ip address from the domain controller. I get "Request Timed Out". I tried pinging the DC name (e.g. ping Domain.Name) and I get "Ping request could not find host Domain.Name. Please check the name and try again."
I'm using VMWare 5.5.1 build 19175 and windows XP Professional with SP 2.
