I got a question about Fusion 5 and it's capabilities regarding giving guest OS separate IP address to the host machine itself.

I need to be able to ping the guest OS (Windows 7) but with the default IP settings it doesn't go through. So is it possible to configure Fusion 5 so Win7 will have it's own IP from the host OSX 10.8 and ping will reach from another PC to that guest Win7?
