I can ping outside but not inside on ESXI 3.5

Hi there,
I had some problems with a ESXI server which wouldn't start anymore. It gave an error on oem.tgz which holds the network and raid driver of the system. I managed to get it running again, but now I have the next problem. I can ping outside from the ESXI server using the management network test, but I can't ping the server or one of it's VM's. However I can connect with infrastructure client to the server.
Can anyone point me in the right direction on this?

describe your config in more detail like:
- vswitch/portgroup config (IPs, settings and vlans)
- vm ip/portgroup config (portgroup is a name of a Network (network label) in VM properties
- what you exactly can ping and what you exactly (IP address and what it is) can't ping and from where

It was a corrupt oem.tgz which I was able to replace. After that, vmware started up again.
