    Dude - you're not helping yourself out here. We'll need a bit more information than that to go on. What's your experience like on VMWare? What version are you using (Server, Workstation etc)? What's your networking setup? Are you running on a domain or workgroup? What are you using as a default gateway? etc.

    Not sure how it is on vmware but on virtual pc all you have to do is install IE onto the virtual machine, make sure your firewall is configure on the virtual machine to use ports associated with wih web browsers and trafic eg 80 20/21 etc etc and you shouldn't have any bother.

    If your virtual machine is a DC then its probably not a good idea to allow IE or any browser for that matter run from it.

    i think what you need to do is:
    on your physical computer that is running vmware go into control panel -> networks ->network connections (so that you can see all the diffrent ways of conecting your physical computer to the network be that ethernet or wifi)
    on that page you should have a adapter called vmware network adapter, right click on it then properties then the sharing tab and tick the allow other computers to connect to the internet using this computer

    I haven't used VMworkstation in a while but doesn't it give you IP information the on VM's you have setup? If you click on the VM and look on the left hand side, you should see the properties.
