VMware Windows 2003 unable to access the Network or Internet

I have a virtual machine that is unable to connect to the network or access the Internet.

I have VMware Server 2.0.0 build 122589 running on my Windows XP Pro SP3 workstation.  I have 4GB RAM with a Q6600 processor.  I'm trying to set up a test IIS server.
The guest OS is Windows Server 2003 Standard R2 with 1GB of RAM assigned.

From the host OS is able to ping the guest OS, but not the other way around.

Thank you!

For the guest OS check the network card options that you choose.I think you choosed host only.change it to bridged and you should be right.

Yes.  I unplugged the cable and reattached it after about 15 seconds.  No change yet.

What is being pinged IP or host name (or both)?

BurrtechAuthor Commented:
We figured out the real issue.  The Cisco VPN Client 5.0 on the host machine was interfering with the networking.   Turning the service off fixed things.

Note: I've found that disabling the service, or setting the service to manual did not really help.  I had to start and stop the service before things to worked.  There must be something that turns on by default when you the VPN client installed.  Because of this, I simply uninstalled VPN.

Thank you for your help.
