I am having an issue with my VMWare Workstation 9.0. The host and guest are not communicating with each other. Cannot ping or map drives between them. All other computers on the network can ping and map drives with the host and the guest (vm). Here are the details of the Host and Guest:
Host O/S: Windows Pro 7 64-bit
Guest (VM) O/S: Windows XP Pro 32-bit
The VM Workstation is running version 9.0.2. The Network Adapter is set at Bridged. Both the Host and Guest are set DHCP and get IP Address that are on the same network. The firewall is disabled on the Guest. The firewall on the Host is enabled now, but I disabled it temporary and it had no effect on the issue. I am not sure what the problem is but I was hoping someone came across this issue before and had a solution. Thanks!
