    Ubuntu 16.04 + Workstation 12.5.5 + NAT + Static IP on Guest - am i doing it wrong?

      OK, quick question - i'm sure i've done this before on Windows hosts and it is surely something people want to work...

       

      Windows guest.  Ubuntu 16.04 host.

      VMNET 8 - NAT

      DHCP on VMNET 8 enabled as per default - IP range 172.16.85.0/24

       

      DHCP IP in guest = access to outside networks work (can ping 8.8.8.8, DHCP allocated IP was 172.16.85.128)

      Static IP in guest (IP 172.16.85.10, netmask 255.255.255.0, gateway 172.16.85.1) = access to outside networks unavailable (can not ping 8.8.8.8.  i can however ping 172.16.85.1)

       

       

      Is this expected behaviour on a LINUX host?  OR is it something peculiar to my environment?

      Is it possible to fix?  I want to set up an AD domain in a lab environment on a NAT network with internet access from my host.
