Have internet access so therefore the bridging/ vmware adapter is working fine but I can not ping my own gateway.

Note I have a 2003 server MS with 2 nics, one for ISP and one for routing. Also, I am trying to ping from internal workstation that has vmware.

When I am on the Vista Home premium, I have workstation 6 running. I can not ping my internal gateway  or isp address but it goes out to the internet ok.

No there is no firewall.

I want to be able to ping my internal network. Is this possible?

What I really want to do is running to is run ris (remote installation to deploy images/ Window 2003 Server) through vmware ( crazy I know) . My Server is acting up ever since install WDS (Windows Deployment Service), WDS legacy (for xp image/older machines) won't allow me to create the image to deploy (ely5132.din, system can't find, error). I figured if I could install vmware and install server hopefully I can do this through vmware but I need dhcp to work so I can network boot.

Please tell me I am not dream and there is hope to do.

Ground Rule Zero: - Windows Vista Home Premium is not intended for networking, i am not sure if that will work in a Windows Server network enviorment.

What i beleive is that your Virtual machine's network adapter is set to NAT, when it should be in bridge mode. Once in bridge mode, your VM will work sweet as, please, just a reminder, your gues VM OS should be server 2003 R2 to do WDS etc, and yes, it's possible, you ain't dreaming..
