I have installed a VMWare with MS Server 2008 and also a VWWare with MS Windows 7.
The network adapter in VMWare is set to Bridged (autodetect).
I can connect from the server to the client but in the other direction (client to the server) it doesn't work.
Recently I switched the firewall off and set some inbound rules but after that it still doesn't work.
I think it's something with the settings of the network...
Client LAN Connection: IP Address: 172.25.0.55; Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0; Default Gateway: 172.25.0.201; DHCP Server: 172.25.0.100; DNS Server: 172.25.0.100
Server LAN Connection: IP Address: 172.16.253.128; Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0; Default Gateway: 172.16.253.2; DHCP Server: 172.16.253.254
I did also a ping from the server to the client and that's works fine.
But in the other direction (a ping from the client to the server) doesn't work that because I get always 'Request timed out'
Any suggestions for this problem?
