I have a fresh install of vmware workstation 8 on my Windows 7 x64 machine. I'm running a server 2008 R2 guest.

I have the networking set to bridged on vmware, however while I can browse the internet on the guest, and I can ping my router from the guest, I cannot ping the guest from the host.

I have windows firewall off on both the guest and host.

Any ideas whats going wrong?

just check, and toggle between NAT and Bridged and see if it resets?

I tried everything, re-installing vmware workstation, the network driver, the guest os, nothing worked. I finally re-installed my hosts OS and now it works, so I don't suppose I'll ever know for sure what the problem was.

Nothing worked, until I re-installed OS, and this was not really a solution...
