    ping host OS from guest vmware

      Hi,

       

       

      Below is my setup

       

       

      Host OS: windows xp (firewall configured)

       

       

      IP: Gave a statis IP (say 192.168.1.120)

       

       

      Guest OS: Windows Server 2003

       

       

      IP: Gave  a static IP (say 192.168.1.121)

       

       

      Both are using the same Gateway, subnet & DNS servers (as part of router).

       

       

      Guest is setup to use Bridge Network.

       

       

      The problem is that i am not able to ping the Host OS from the Guest OS but can do other way.  I am able to access internet on Guest OS, so network settings are set right as far as i see. If i disable the firewall on Host OS, then i am able to ping host OS from guest. Any idea how i can add exception or what ports to open for exception in host firewall? I have default installation of vmware workstation.

       

       

      Any information would be of great help.

       

       

      Thanks,

       

       

      Sri.
