Ping a remote Host-Only VMware network

I have two machines (Machine A and Machine B) in my lab, they can ping each other (, respectively).  On machine B (, I am running VMs with a host only network setup (192.168.101.*).  How can I setup Machine A to communicate with one of the VMs?  Both Machines A & B are running Windows 7.  VMs are running Windows Servers OS

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you reconfigure the networking to BRIGDED MODE, the VMs will be part of the same network 192.168.0.x, and will be able to communicate rather than using the default NAT.

Bridged Mode

If you can not reconfigure to bridge, is it true that there is no way to talk with the Host-Only Network.   I noticed,  Machine B which host the VMs can communicate with each VM with Host-Only networking setup.  Machine A which is on the same LAN as Machine B can not communicate with VMs on Machine B.
Currently,  I don't have that option to go to change the VM network adapter setup.  I do not have the Login access to those VMs except I can communicate with it through HTTP.

Host only is host only, VMs can communicate with the host, and VMs on that network.
