Have VMware machines ping each other but be on a different subnet?

Greetings,
I have two VMware Windows XP Pro SP3 workstations. I would like one to have the ip address of  10.10.10.2 and the other to have the ip address of 10.10.50.2.

Of course if i just set the IP's there is no reason the two should be able to ping each other. Is there an option in VM server or workstation  that will allow be to create a connection so that 10.10.50.2 can ping anything on the 10.10.10.X subnet?

Thank you!

If  the two VM's are on the same switch, then the windows route command can be used to allow the two VM's with different networks to communicate.
