I have installed mikrotik's routerOS 5.2 on a VM with full options. after installing it I have configure the ethernet 1 like below ip address > add address= interface=ether1

but I've set on my VM's external NIC but still I can't ping the router. this is the only setting I have set on routerOS why I'm not able to ping routerOS?do I need to config routerOS with more setting?

Have you checked the firewall rules? Can you ping from RouterOS? –  Cry Havok May 5 '11 at 16:32
do i have to set firewall rules too? is it set by default to drop all packets? –  austin powers May 5 '11 at 22:01
Are you running a bridge? Try "/interface bridge settings print" to check first. –  Michael Feng Jun 30 '11 at 16:50
Same issue here. Stops me from using hyper-V at the moment. Have you opened a support ticket with Mikrotik? What Hyper-V version do you use? How is the virtual network set up? –  TomTom Jun 10 '12 at 12:14
