have you configured the vmware workstation networking correctly?

can the VM's ping anything at all?

can the VM's see the internet?

can you ping the VM's from your workstation?

have you disabled firewalls on the VM's?

For each of your VMs right click the tab at the top and select settings. It will open a dialog similar to my screenshot. Make sure both of your VMs are configured on the same network (Bridged, NAT, host only)

Good Luck
