    Thanks for your response I have checked on firewall is off on both machines and I was using NAT before in vmware workstation 9 with ip range from 10.0.0.1 to onward up to 10.0.0.127 and after that for DHCP in VMWare Workstaion network editor ip range from 10.0.0.128 to 10.0.0.254 as I am new to it I want to configure network setting as Bridge network so what I can do to do that so i can access internet on virtual machnies, and can access vm from host



    I am using Windows 7 Professional 64 bit Host Machine



    In VMWare Worksation 9 I am using Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit



    Static IP on VM is 10.0.0.102

    Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0

    Default Gateway is 10.0.0.2

    DNS is 10.0.0.2



    Second VM is also Windows Server 2008 R2



    Static IP is 10.0.0.103

    Subnet Mask 255.255.255,0

    Default Gateway is 10.0.0.2

    DNS IS 10.0.0.2



    I am using ADSL braodband at home and from Router DHCP ip on Host is 192.168.0.4

    Quite happy to offer some advice and guidance (it's what we do here) but please start a new thread instead of continuing to use this one (and post it into the VMware Certifications forum as well please).

    Thanks AJ :)

    Lynccs,

    A couple of questions for you first of all.

    Are you sure that your 10.0.0.2 information is correct, what is that device? As far as a bridged network is concerned you should be using the same DHCP server as your physical machine, in your case that's the 192.168.0.x /24 network. My guess at the moment is that you've either misunderstood what Bridged Networking is or you're using bridged but have configured your own address range on that network and because of that it's not working (the default gateway probably can't talk to the 192.168.0.x network because you haven't multi-homed the default gateway).

    I would first of all have a look at the networking configured for each VM and confirm it's configured to use Bridged Networking rather than NAT. Once you have confirmed that you are using Bridged Networking I would remove any static addressing and try to boot the VM using just DHCP, does it get a 192.168.0.x address?

    If it does then you need to change your VM IP addressing to utilise the 192.168.0.x network instead of the 10.0.0.x network.

    Please answer the question about 10.0.0.2 and also carry out the testing mentioned above and get back to me.
