Can't Ping vm from Guest pc

HI There, 

So I have two physical PCs here and they are both on the same Wi-fi Network. The host has the VM running on it and both the Host and VM can ping the guest pc on the network. The guest pc can ping the host but not the VM. 

I have the VM in bridged mode and not sure what else I am missing for the guest to be able to Ping the VM.

Probably a windows firewall rule if its a windows VM.

Clues as to which VMware product you’re actually using?

could be based on what nic the bridge is set for if you have physical nic and wifi card, you need to specify which bridged nic is used with the VM.

Thread reported, it needs moving to the area for Workstation.

1. show screenshot of "Virtual Network Editor" - keep in mind that autodetect is a bluff and will not work on hosts with more than one NIC.
2. tells us which operating systems are involved - Windows 11 ?
3. try something different to check connection like RDP, ssh, Cifs or even better run a portscanner
