I have a vma and a windows PC as guests on a esxi 5.1 host.  From both guests I can ping everything on the network and the guests and ping each other.  I can not ping the guests from my subnet, but the guests can ping my workstation.  I can ping the guest from a workstation on the same subnet.  I believe with a fresh install of 5.1 you can not ping from other subnets, but I can not access the vma on port 5480 to manage it either.  HELP!

Are all the firewalls allowing ICMP traffic or enabled at all?

I have 6 other hosts with no issues, and no firewalls are between the two devices.  

Is there something different with a fresh build of 5.1 than an upgrade from 4.1 to 5.1?

There would not be any difference with a upgrade and a fresh install. Atleast nothing to do with machines not being able to communicate.
Have you checked the firewall on your workstation? Just reboot your workstation once and try. If the guests are able to ping your workstation then there is communication between the subnets.

Are you using vLANs on your network?

I was able to get them both to work.  The windows PC patched and turned on the firewall.  The vma, I redeployed and let it take a DHCP address and it is now working.
