My setup is the following:
- VMWare Workstation 6.5
- Host OS - Vista Ultimate x64
- Guest OS - Vista Ultimate x64
- Notes - Both OS in same domain and using DHCP (and can talk to any machine on the network and over the internet fine)
- Other special Notes - this is a newer laptop and the network adapter supports IPV6
- Network Adapter - Bridged (with Replicate State checked)
- Guest Isolation - VMCI is checked to allow host communication
- The goal is to get both the Guest and Host to see eachother and the network.
I have tried the following with the following results (just pinging):
Disabled all network adapters on HostOS (except wireless) :
This works intermittently from the HostOS to the GuestOS (dropped packets), and doesn't work at all from the GuestOS to the HostOS ... however I did notice something strange when I ping the GuestOS(by name) on the GuestOS ... it successfully pings with IPV6 ... when I ping the GuestOS(by name) from the HostOS it seemingly uses IPV4. I disabled IPV6 on both adapters (Guest and Host) and received similar results and the GuestOS ping to the GuestOS looks something like this :::::::1 but it states that it was a successful ping.
Tried everything I did above, however, over the regular ethernet adapter:
Works like a champ no problems. However that weird self ping on the GuestOS still returns IPV6 responses.
Tried NAT with similar results.
