Linux network quesiton

I  can ping to my physical Linux box which is 192.168.0.10 it is directly connected to my internet route (192.168.0.1), but from my physical linux machine I can't ping 192.168

[root@localhost ~]# ip route

192.168 isn't a valid IP address.

I think I found the problem, if my explanation is or assumption is wrong, please correct me.

From vmware default gateway is 192.168.72.2, and if there is no traffic within this subnet it will routed to 192.168.0.1, and then it will reach my 192.168.0.10 physical box, but from  physical box when it wants to reach to 192.168.72.143, in needs to go to default gatway 192.168.0.1, and it doesn't know about 192.168.72.2 gateway.  Am I right? Please correct me.

Where is this 192.168.72.143 located?
Because it looks like it's in the same computer.

By the way, after you paste in tables like that, if you highlight them and then click 'code' on the editor's toolbar, it makes them a lot easier to read.
e.g.
[root@localhost ~]# netstat  -rn
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags   MSS Window  irtt Iface
192.168.72.0    0.0.0.0         255.255.255.0   U         0 0          0 eth0
0.0.0.0         192.168.72.2    0.0.0.0         UG        0 0          0 eth0

So is it a second physical network adapter, or is it a virtual network adapter?

mokkanAuthor Commented:
This one is virtual network adapter? I may be missing the network fundamental here. If I am wrong correct me

Because our internet router 192.168.0.1 doesn't know about 192.168.72.1, but 192.168.72.1 know about 192.168.0.1.  Am I right?

router: 192.168.0.1 , computer : 192.168.0.10
your virtual network adapter if set to nat, then the virtual computer 192.168.72.143 can ping to outside world i.e 192.168.0.10, 192.168.0.1 or even google, but the outside world cannot ping 192.168.72.143 (because it is under nat)
