Dear Experts - i have the following setup:

laptop/host: win10 on 10.10.10.x
rhel6 vmware vm: nat on 192.168.14.x

from rhel6 vm, i can ping anything on the 10.10.10.x subnet, but not the reverse.

could you please help me make the configuration changes so that the two networks can talk to each other? thanks!!!

Can you set the virtual machine networking to Bridged so guests are on the same network as the hosts?

Is the RedHat firewall blocking the host network?

VMware Workstation does use NAT by design (I agree with you) and needs firewall changes (normally) to permit traffic flow.

I find Bridged networking easier to get started with and prove it works before using NAT.
