VMWare Workstation Not Reaching a Desktop

DesktopOne:; (Static IP and this is where VMWare is hosted)
DesktopTwo:; (Dynamic IP)

I cannot get DesktopTwo to reach VMOne.  VMOne can reach both computers.  DesktopOne can reach both computers.  I try pinging VMOne's IP address from DesktopTwo and it reports "Request timed out."

I'm using VMWare Player, and this seemed to happen once I upgraded to Windows 10.  Any ideas?

Windows firewall?

Try re-installing VMware Player.

Your VM is on a NAT network and so the firewall in the guest and host need to allow the guest subnet.

Try using Bridged Network as that will work.

It worked, but what entry would I look for in the firewall to troubleshoot this?  I'm using Windows firewall.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
For Bridged Networking you are all on one subnet (the host machine subnet) so no particular entries are needed.

For NAT, you need a firewall exception for the .150 subnet. I use Symantec Endpoint and just went to the Firewall settings and allowed traffic for my NAT subnet. I can easily transfer data between guest and host when guest network setting are using NAT (which I do on my laptop).
