No connectivity to Internet from Windows Home Server

Have recently installed,as an experiment, Windows home server on Vmware Workstation 6 ACE with Windows vista as Guest OS. Have chosen a bridged connection and,as they say, it should sort out the connectivity to the Internet automatically. Not true! I would like to be able to use Home Server to store  and backup data on my two machines and have remote access to files when required, with my iphone.

I have the following network configuration:

VMnet 8 :- Subnet 192.168.80.0, Netmask 255.255.255.0

VMnet 1 :-  Subnet 192.168.44.0, Netmask 255.255.255.0

Host Machine     Local Area Connection 3 (Vmnet 1)  Automatic Ip address

                           Local Area Connection 3 (Vmnet 1)  Automatic Ip address

                           Local Area Connection WLAN_88     Automatic Ip address

I've tried to find in the user guide network settings I can use to connect to the internet but failed.

Can you help me with some words of wisdom and assist me with my problem.

Can you post a "ipconfig /all" and "route print" of both your host and guest machine?

NOTE: AN AMMENDMENT TO IMFORMATION PREVIOUSLY SUBMITTED

Host machine connections should read as follows:

                           Local Area Connection 3 (Vmnet 1)  Automatic Ip address

   ***************** Local Area Connection 4 (Vmnet 8)  Automatic Ip address********************

                           Local Area Connection WLAN_88     Automatic Ip address

HOPE THE INFO IS HELPFUL

It seems that your Guest OS is not connected to the bridged VMnet Network. It is connected to VMnet8, usually VMnet0 is the bridged network.

Please show a screenshot of your VMware Virtual Network Editor.

Connect your guest OS to the proper bridged VMnet, then it should get an IP Address out of your 192.168.1.x subnet and you should be able to connect to the internet.

Which one of your physical connections goes to your regular LAN 192.168.1.x? Local Area Connection 3 or 4?

Can you show us also a screenshot of the Automatic Bridging, DHCP and NAT tabs as well.

Disable DHCP Server on the VMnet which is bridged to your 192.168.1.x subnet. The VM should the get an IP Address of your physical 192.168.1.x network, and not from the virtual VMware DHCP Server on VMnet8.

Seems like your VM is linked to VMnet0, but VMnet0 is not bridged to any of your physical adapters. Since you have bridged manually both of your physical adapters 3 and 4 to VMnet1 and VMnet8, there is no physical adpter left to be bridged to VMnet 0.

Easiest would be to just delete one of the mappings in the "Host Virtual Network Mapping", for example "Local Area Connection 3", this would free one physical adapter and it would assign this free adapter to VMnet0.

Also, remove the DHCP Server on VMnet0 (DHCP Tab).

Let me know if I can assist you further.

I've deleted Local Area Connection 3 and removed the DHCP server on VMnet0 but I still cannot get a connection to the internet. Any thoughts?

What IP Adress do you get on your VM?

Do a "ipconfig /release", then a "ipconfig /renew" and then "ipconfig /all", what ip addresses are shown?

Reboot host and VM just to make sure.

OK, your VM has now connection to your 192.168.1.x network.

Try to ping 192.168.1.1 (if successful you have connection to your router)
then ping 8.8.8.8 (if successful you have connections to internet)

Then try if name resolution works: ping www.google.com

And a ping to 8.8.8.8 from your host machine works?

Run a "tracert 8.8.8.8" from both your host and guest.

Do you have any Firewall/other security defined on your router? Looks like it accepts packets from 192.168.1.34 (your Host) but denies to forward packets from 192.168.1.35 (your guest).

What router are you using to connect to the Internet?

I've turned off the firewall temporarily to try and fathom out what's going on. My router is a Xavi 7968, as supplied from my ISP.
