If you have an antivirus/firewall on Win7 try to disable it and restart the VM.
I add the problem with NOD32

Make sure you have installed the VMWare tools inside Ubuntu.

Hi Bxoz,

Isn't it possible to connect to the internet while antivirus is running, I have Mc Afee anti virus , is there any way to make an exception for ubuntu running on top
of the VMWare ?

Thanks,

Hi!

Maybe you could try VirtualBox instead of VMware?
