Specs: Windows 7
Hi everyone,

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?

Kind regards,
Kr

It's no wonder you can't ping from one to the other. These are different subnets and the only way to get them to communicate with each other would be to get a router in the mix and put a static route between the two subnets.

So keep things simple, try putting the server and client in the same subnet to start with. Once you have that working, then you can experiment with separate subnets.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
