I've set up a Loopback Adapter on my Windows with IP

in my Windows 2008 host, I've installed ISPConfig3 on Ubuntu-12.04-i386 (VMWare) using tutorial here . The IP for Ubuntu is and the hostname is server1.example.lan

The problem is, I've added the IP above as DNS in my Windows' Loopback Adapter. but I can't ping server1.example.lan from Windows...

What could be the problem?
