Open VMware Workstation and edit the settings file for the XP machine. Change Networking from NAT to Bridged. Save, close out, restart the XP Machine and it will be on the same subnet as the host.

Create Route between 2 subnets


Run CMD as Admin

route ADD -P destination_network MASK subnet_mask  gateway_ip metric_cost

so:
If your your gateway is 192.168.2.1

Route ADD -P 192.168.1.0 MASK 255.255.255.0 192.168.2.1
