Host: Windows Server 2008 / VMWare Server 2 Has Internet connection ip: 172.17.62.1 (NAT adapter) no gateway, no dns

Guest: Windows Server 2003 ip: 172.17.62.2 (NAT) gateway 172.17.62.5 (set in VMware network manager for NAT)

Host and guest can see each other, but guest have no internet connection (only ping by ip) In what may be the problem?

All firewalls are down, I can ping hosts, but no telnet connection - telnet google.com 80


Workaround with proxy server installed on host. All guests can access to internet I don't know why vmware server cannot share internet in this configuration

You're going to have to add a LOT more detail if you expect this to be answered. –  Chopper3 Mar 16 '11 at 11:47
    
What do you mean by "Only ping by IP"? If you can successfully ping in or out, it means you have an internet connection. –  matthew Mar 16 '11 at 11:49
    
If you can ping Internet hosts by IP, perhaps you have a DNS problem? Not sure what exactly you mean. –  Jeremy Mar 16 '11 at 11:54
    
I supposed that DNS problem ,but how to investigate it? –  ziftech Mar 16 '11 at 12:14
