    VMWare Fusion (Mac) unable to connect to VMWare Workstation Server (Windows): "Connection timed out"

      Hi, I'm really not sure where to start debugging this. I am trying to connect from my mac running fusion to my server running workstation (both latest versions). I am able to reach the server via ping, but have not tried to ssh as I don't think vmware is using that for the connection. My end goal is to be able to run an ubuntu VM that is accessible from each of my two mac machines when I'm at home and over the internet when I am in the office.

       

      Every time I try and connect, I simply get "connection timed out". I have tried the IP address of the server, the hostname etc. I really don't have much experience with windows (linux / macos background), so any insights would be greatly appreciated.

       

      Thanks!
