I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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
