VM Workstation 9 - Cannot access guest web server or ping system

I have a workstation guest that has a bridged network connection to my host.  I am not able to access the web server running on the guest from the host or ping.  

Other systems on the network can do both but not from my host system.  I've opened a ticket with VMware Support but thought I'd see if anyone else has experienced this before.

VMware Workstation 9 build 1031769
Guest System:  Win 2008 Server R2 Datacenter
Host System:  Win 7 Pro 64bit

I uninstalled the SonicWall Global VPN Client and now I can access the guest vm just fine.

Thanks everyone!

Have you tried disabling the Windows firewall on your Host machine i.e Windows 7 ?


Try running below command on both Host and Guest machine

netsh firewall set icmpsetting 8 enable

Yup, disabled the FW on both systems to see what would happen - no dice.

I ran the command provided without any luck there either.

Thank you for the fast reply.

Yes, VPN Clients screw-up the Virtual Network Interface connections

Found that the SonicWall Global VPN client was the root cause of all problems.
