Virtualise NT4

I am having some problems getting a virtual machine to be seen on the local network.

I have used VMWorkstation (V7) to virtualise an NT4 server that was about to die on old hardware. Whilst the virtualisation went well, I am having difficulty getting it seen on the local network. I have installed a NIC (AMD) as suugested here at EE and I can ping it from the PC it is hosted on but no-one else on the network can see it. I can access the net and log into other PC's from it but not the other way around. I have set a static ip and installed Netbui but still no good.

What am I doing wrong??

Have you set the network on your VMWorkstation as NAT or Bridged (bridged will be the one you want if it isn't).

Thanks Jake

Setup as Bridged and also "Replicate physical network connection state"

Hey differduffer...

Are you saying it's already set as bridged or asking a question?

What happens when you do a tracert from another machine to the virtualised NT4 box?  Where does the tracert stop?
