Vmware bridged network issue

Hi experts

I have a problem with a VMware fusion bridged network.
This is my configuration:

192.168.1.1 (ADSL router - Gateaway)
      192.168.1.2 (Host - Mac OS X 10.5.7)
            192.168.1.21 (Guest Win XP)
      192.168.1.3 (Host - Win XP)
            192.168.1.31 (Guest Redhat 5)

I can ping to
192.168.1.1 from all the IP's, guests and hosts
192.168.1.2 (MAC host) from .1.3 ,  .1.31 and .1.21
192.168.1.3 (Win host) from .1.2 , .1.31 and 1.21
192.169.1.31 (Guest Win XP on XP host) from .1.3 , .1.2 and 1.21

But I can't ping 192.169.1.21 (XP Guest in Mac host) from not any host at all, even its own parent host.

It's a Mac network problem? How can be solved?

Thanks in advance.

Is the Windows Firewall enabled or do you have an Internet Security Suite running? Sounds like it may be something along those lines... There is no inherent reason with an OS X host would not be able to ping an XP guest.

Append this to my other comment.

One additional item: To avoid being bugged by Windows Firewall popups reminding you about the firewall, look on the left side of the Security Settings window for "Change the Way Security Center Alerts Me" (the last item in the list). Uncheck whichever boxes you wish, I have all boxes unchecked once I have my security settings the way I want them, I don't want to be reminded by Windows that my settings don't meet Microsoft's expectations <<grin>>
