Are you using hostname of the VM or IP?

Sometimes, connection to VMs in 'host-only' mode is 'flaky'. If you're able, reboot your "host" (i.e. your workstation).

Do not use Host-Only Mode, change it to BRIDGED.

You might check VMware's known issues on this page ( https://www.vmware.com/support/vsphere5/doc/vsphere-esx-vcenter-server-50-release-notes.html#clientissues ) to see if yours matches any of these.

VMware is generally very good about resolving user problems.

If you're testing vSphere5 out, & only want your local workstation/desktop to 'see' your vSphere5 VM, host-only DOES work...no need to change it to Bridged. I had this issue a few wks back and after playing around with my workstation network settings (basically just going in them then clicking 'ok' out of them), it worked. More than likely, if everything is setup correctly, which there isn't too much to it, a reboot of your workstation should resolve your issue.

No, use the IP of the VM. Can you ping the VM IP from your workstation?

If the VM IP is 0.6, use that...
