Did you assign a default gateway? Can you post the output of route -n?

Did you ping using hostname or ip address, what was the error?

Try the ip.

Is dns configured? Try moving /etc/resolv.conf and try again.

Is the gw and the server connected to the same LAN segment?

I've just been able to open the EE.docs file, you have a virbr0, is this a Guest OS under VMWare?

Have you selected the correct NIC option in the VMWare config for the server?

what are the ip address and netmask details for the gw?

virbr0 can be setup even if vmware was not installed. But seems like a valid point to get started.

how are you pinging gateway - by name or ip (afterthought :)
