Hi all,

Here is my scenario

ADSL ROUTER 1 MBPS
DHCP - FROM ROUTER
IP RANGE 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.255

Laptops connected through wireless.

Laptop 1 - Vmware Workstation 7 Installed
vmnet1 - host only - Connected host virtual adaptor to the physical network - using local dhcp service to distribute IP to vm
Subnet 192.168.40.0
One VM working this Win XP Pro SP3

Laptop 2 - Vmware Workstation 7 Installed
vmnet1 - host only - Connected host virtual adaptor to the physical network - using local dhcp service to distribute IP to vm
Subnet 192.168.20.0
One VM working this Win XP Pro SP3

I'm unable to ping VM on Laptop 1 from Laptop 2 & vice versa.

Someone kindly assist how to accomplish this.
If i choose bridge this network then all vm's will acquire IP from DHCP (Router) & access to internet will be granted. (I dont want this to happen)

Just want all VM's to communicate with each other although in different subnets.

    Tough, you are going to have to bridge it for one to talk to the other since they are on separate physical machines. The only way to have 2 VMs talk to each other without using a physical network, is to have them on the same host using the same virtual network.

    The first thing that I would check is the firewall on Windows XP, the firewall will block the ICMP packets...turn off the firewall and see if that fixes it.

    Everyone is right, if you want the VM's to be on different networks you'll need sonething like RRAS to route traffic between subnets.
    NSX, NSX, more NSX..
