      Workstation 7 running under Centos5  ESX 3.5 guest running on Host only network will not see network, it can ping its self on is own IP and localhost ip,  Windows Guests can ping themselves and everything else except the ESX 3.5 guest.  vSphere 4 guests also function correctly.



      I have run the command chmod a+rw /dev/vmnet# to allow a standard user to move the vmnics into promiscious mode.
