Hi,

I have a really strange problem.
I have just converted a physical system to a virtual machine.
After this conversion I can successfully start the machine without any problems EXCEPT I can't ping any system in the same subnet, I can however ping everything behind the router...

- What do you mean by "behind the router", where is your host machine located in the network structure ?
- What is the role of your virtual machine/host machine
