    Vmware guests machines cannot communicate in the same network with Vmware host

    Pavlos555 Lurker

      Dear All,



      I am using Vmware workstation version 12.1.1 build-3770994 and i want to connect to the same network my host OS (Windows 10, 64-bit  (Build 14393) 10.0.14393) with my two guest machines (debian linux and windows 7).

      Currently as per my research from page https://www.vmware.com/support/ws55/doc/ws_net_configurations_bridged.html i enabled to the virtual network editor two bridged interfaces (one linked to my host wireless adapter and the other linked to my Ethernet adapter.


      Status is that both guest machines are able to communicate with each other and to all other hosts on the same network (ping is possible and also network shares are accessible) and acquire a DHCP address from the router (i have tested my environment only to wireless connections on multiple routers - home, office and public WiFi access), but neither of them are able to communicate with the host machine and vice versa as during all of my ping tests i am getting the result destination host unreachable from the IP address of the guests. All three machines are able to ping the default gateway at all times.

      Also I have proceeded and uninstalled AVG antivirus that i had installed before installing workstation to my laptop and also disable windows firewall on both windows machines (the host and one guest).


      Can you please assist me with the above?
