Can not connect from sun solaris 10 to Windows xp

Dear all,

I am a new beginner in Sun Solaris. I have installed sun solaris 10 on VMWare 6.5 program on My Computer which run Windows Xp. After i complete installation Sun Solaris 10 on VMWare it was assigned IP to 192.168.63.125 netmask ffffff00 and Windows XP ip address is 192.168.63.128 255.255.255.0. However i can not connect from Window Xp (contain VMWare) to Sun Solaris. Could any body tell what i did wrong to my configuration?

Thanks

Perhaps you need VMWare specialist here rather then Solaris. They suppose to be in the same Ethernet segment  according to IP addresses and ping each other. Maybe its the way how VMware configured.

Hello!
 how would yo like to connect. There are whole lot of protocols you can connect by. If you want to connect via ssh for example you need to install ssh daemon (server) on your Windows XP.
If you want to mount shared drives from your Windows to Solaris you need to install samba client to your Solaris box. The package can have a name SMCsamba with variations.
Generally you need to install samba client to be able to support Windows shared disks.

Kind regards,
t.

How you tried to connect? is it with telnet or ssh for example? Can you ping its ip address from windows xp?

With IP addresses you have assigned you should be able to ping servers. The problem might be somewhere else. You might have Windows firewall enable which drops ICMP packets in that case you should be able to ping Solaris from Windows but not vice versa.
