Cannot access the Guest OS IP in VMServer 2.0

Posted on 2008-11-17

I installed VMServer 2.0 in the Windows Vista which has only 1 NIC and installed windows 2008 server as the Guest OS. I used Bridged network adapter in the Guest OS. However, I can't ping the IP no matter in Host machine or using other machines in the same subnet.

What's the problem?

    Does the 2008 server have it's firewall enabled?  This might keep the ping from getting to it?  Can you ping devices on your network from the guest 2008 server?

    yup. I can ping outside as well as internet in the guest OS. Let me check if it has firewall enabled. Thanks
