    If you have configured VMware workstation correctly then your physical machine should have some more IP addresses than it did before you installed WS.

    Do an ipconfig /all from a command prompt and have a look at the ip addresses you have. Once you have identified the address used try pinging either the server or workstation from the other device. You should find that they respond correctly (your physical machine should be issuing IP addresses to all devices attached to it, by that I mean the vmware virtual nic on the physical machine as well as on any and all virtual machines.

    The next thing I would do is have a look to make sure that the firewall isn't blocking icmp.

    Do that and come back with any more information.

    thank god after some research :biggrin i am able to communicate both ways.....my question is there is a class c IP assigned to the virtual nic and using the vmware dhcp service the guest machine is taking the class c ip address ...if i change that class c ip to a class A ip in my virtual NIC in my host, will the guest take Class A ip?
