Able to ping only one way from RHEL5 to centos vm.

I am running centos image on rhel5 using a vmplayer.
i can ping from rhel 5 to the image, but cant ping the other way. I get the error network not available.
The network adaptor configuration of the image is NAT.

any help

correct. It's not being Network Address Translated, and ICMP is not Network Address Translated.

Okay, if you leave it set to NAT, you will NOT be able to ping the VM.

In NAT mode, it does not forward ICMP - Pings.
