I am using Red Hat Linux 5.3 on Vmware; Windows 7 as host.

On host OS (Windows 7) - All links are opening and pinging.



Although I can ping Website with name & WAN IP (Or website IP) from Linux (Guest OS); Viz,

I am not able to open any website or any web link on Linux (Guest OS),.

I don't see any reasons but I am stuck.


What could be the reasons,
What could be the solutions.

Thanks,
Ashish

Check the settings of your web-browser. Maybe it is trying to use a proxy server...

How is the networking setup on VMWare?  Does it get an IP address from your local LAN, or do you have it on its own subnet and using the Windows OS to do routing?

Check firewall settings on your RHEL guest, add  correct port so external access (from Windows) is allowed.

is the Linux server running Web Services e.g. Apache?

can you telnet to the IP Address of the Linux Server on port 80?

e.g. telnet <IP Address> 80
