you put ESX for a tag; is this involved somehow?

if it's just vmware workstation then enable RDP in the guest as you normally would and do a remote desktop connection to the guest (by name or IP) as you normally would

The default network setting for VMware Workstation is NAT. So your guest machine is on a different subnet.

Either take the different subnet into account or, try Bridged Networking. Bridged Networking may be easier to start with.

options i am using now -host only-private network share with host and i also configured bridged  like

on my pc ip is 192.168.1.2

on host only its taking ips like 192.168.60.x

on bridged its taking ip like 192.168.60.128


am able to ping bridged ip[192.168.60.128] from my pc...but no luck to take rdp or browser access ?

is there any gateway to be configured ? or if any more config required ?

Get free NFR key for Veeam Availability Suite 9.5

The two IP addresses above are appropriate for your host and bridged guest machine.  You should not use Host Only as that will isolate your machine. Stick with Bridged and you should be able to access it like a real machine.

If you are using Host ONLY Mode.

You should be able to access those VMs, via a Web Browser or RDP using their "internal IP Addresses" with no changes.

I would recommend and install AutoLab! (it completes ALL the configuration for you).

see my EE Article for details of AutoLab in Part A.
