I have one laptop with VM Workstation 10. Setup as Host Only network. I have another laptop running a standalone application that is access by client software on the first laptop. There is a delay in finding the laptop running standalone when a request is made from the Workstation Host laptop. When I ping from the VM Host laptop it reports no response, then ping responds correctly. I see the reason why but don't know how to correct. The very first ping goes to the VM network Host Only adapter then it hits the second adapter and the ping response is returned properly. Using a four port Netgear Switch to connect systems.
