I'm running a local network. My IP ranges from 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.15. All IP are static ones. And my router's IP is 192.168.1.1 and I provide it as default gateway and preferred DNS server on client machines.
Everything worked fine on this scenario. I could use internet and reach services on other machines. BUT I have installed VMware server 2 on the windows XP to host windows 2003 Virtual Machine (VM). I set the following configuration:
Windows XP's => 192.168.1.11. Windows 2003 => 192.168.1.12. (virtual machine)
This approach worked just fine as it used to work with Microsoft Virtual PC. I can access mysql & IIS websites on the windows 2003 virtual machine.
BUT two things doesn't work anymore on the Windows XP:
- internet connection - but I can see the MAC address on the wireless router
- IIS - Ping on 127.0.0.1 it's ok as I can hit localhost:8222 nor localhost
Does anyone knows how to fix any of this? (at least the internet connection)
