    Unable to remote desktop to VM Machine

    Cristodulus Novice



      I am new to VM environment so please excuse the newbie questions.


      I created a VM machine on a laptop (A) and I am trying to remote desktop from another laptop (B) to the VM and I am unable to do so. Checked the Remote Desktop settings, and I have Allow remote to the machine checked.

      I have followed directions from http://geekswithblogs.net/NewThingsILearned/archive/2009/11/13/connect-to-vmware-virtual-machines-using-remote-desktop.aspx

      I cannot seem to ping the VM from the laptop (B), however, when pinging the laptop (B) from the VM, works. Also, I can remote into the laptop (B) from the VM machine.


      Another issue is that I can't seem to connect to the VM machine from Windows Explorer from Laptop (A), using \\Machine Name\C$.


      I appreciate looking to this!
