VMWare XP Machine can't Access Network Resources

Hello all.  I have an xp client that is a vmware machine that locked up and was not able to be rebooted.  We had to reboot vmware to get it up and running again.  Since it came up though, the machine cannot access network resources.  The only computer it can see/communicate with is the sbs 2008 domain controller.  It can only ping it and no other computer (pinging by name and ip address).  The machine does have a firewall, but it doesn't seem to be blocking anything and the machine is running Forefront security client.  Really stumped on this one as to what could be the issue.  Please help.  Thanks.

Thanks for the help.  Suprisingly this looks to be a MOM issue.  Apparently the computers that were trying to be accessed had some sort of issue with the MOM server and became inaccessible.  A restart of those machines trying to be accessed fixed the problem.  This wasn't a xp or vmware issue at all.  Very strange.

can you check if your dns is working? can you try pinging your default gateway?
can you try pinging google.com?

Thanks.  I can browse to google on the internet, but can't ping it.  I just found out that another vmware xp client is having the same issues.  Could this be a vmware issue?

Apparently this is an issue on other computers as well, not just the vmware clients.

well vmware just passes the traffic to the adapter... you might be blocking some traffic on your network
