Hi Aman, I would disable the firewall.  Maybe that is preventing you to ping to it.  

Good Luck!

Which networking option did you use when you setup the VM?  If you used NAT then your VM is invisible from the outside world.  You should use BRIDGED networking if you want to have the VM appear on your local network.

So there are a few things here. First we need to confirm that the virtual network that the guest machine is actually accessible from the host. Please confirm the virtual network configuration. Is the Windows host on the same subnet as the virtual guest? Also please confirm if there is any communication from the linux guest to the internet.

To check your firewall on winxp. Go to Control panel / Windows Firewall / Turn on or turn off the Firewall.
In this case, please turn off your firewall. You should use "BRIDGED" (default of settinf Wmware is bridged) networking. remember that your networking has signal so that it can communicate between winxp and virtual redhat OS.

What is the IP of the Windows Machine.

Both your Windows XP machine and VM should have IP in same subnet.

Also, both should share same network card on the machine.

Only then, they will ping each other.

"not able to find the windows firewall option in control panel of XP"

You need XP Service Pack 2 for that.

You can view windows firewall in Network Card Properties.

Goto Network Connection, Right Click the NIC and select properties.

Goto Advanced TAB. There you should see Windows Firewall option.
