I have installed a test lab using VMware workstation 9.2 and I am not able to ping the Windows 2008 server from the XP and windows 7 Client and vice versa.
On the Home -Virtual network editor , I clicked add network and choose the Host only and said connect a host virtual adapter to this network. I did this on both server and the client.
I have not chosen use local DHCP service to distribute IP address to VMs, because I have the window DHCP server configured
On the virtual machine settings and on the network adapter I have chosen Custom: specific network and selected the right adapter that I created from the drop down list.
I configured static IP on both Windows 2008 server and XP client and when I ping I get request time out.
I created a rule on the windows 2008 FW to allow ICMP and also I disable the FW on both the server and the client and still I am not able to ping.
Please suggest and tutorial will be helpful.
