Umable to ping between host and guest VM

I'm running Win 7 on Host PC and installed Call manager as guest-OS using VMWare workstation ... I cannot ping between the two IPs that are on the same subnet ... Firewall is turned off on Win 7 and so is Anti Virus software .... Mode that I use for connectivity between the two is bridged mode .... I think this means that Host PC LAN's NIC will be used for communication in and out ....

IP of Win 7 PC:
IP of Guest PC (Call Manager Server):

There are other NICs like Vmnet1 and Vmnet8 which I have not changed anything on ...

Can someone please assist with this ?

In bridged mode, you should be able to ping between the host and VM.

But recently we are see-ing many issues with VMware Workstation 11.

I would re-install VMware Workstation, and also update your host network drivers.
Are your computer connected to the network using an ethernet connection or WIFI?

Found the solution ... There is an option called 'vmware bridge protocol' ... one of the other NICs on the system (used for internet) had that enabled as well as my normal LAN NIC that was being used for the bridge communication between VM and host ... so even route print on PC shows subnet entry as normal, PC somewhere stuffs up the communication ...So disabled this vmware bridge protocol option on my wireless NIC ... so it was only left enabled on the NIC used for the bridge connection and no issues....this option is when you right click on NIC, properties ... just above IPV4 (TCP/IP) setting ...
