I have a vmware-vsphere host with one linux guest Jupiter. Jupiter has internal ip 192.168.2.2 andcan communicate with the internet (outside world) fine (the outside world reaching Jupiter via its public IP). Jupiter can also communicate with other hosts on the same subnet 192.168.2.0/24 (other hosts can see Jupiter on its 192.168.2.2 address). The router is on 192.168.2.1.
There is also another subnet 10.0.0.0/24. Jupiter cannot reach this. no ping, nothing.
I only have access to Jupiter, so I don't know how the router is set up or how the rest of the network looks like (company secrets blablabla). Their sysadmin is saying the problem is with Jupiter not having vmware tools installed. I'm saying the problem must be with routing on the 192.168.2.1 router but they refuse to show me any information about the router.
Are they correct there is a problem with vmware, such as vmware tools?
