comment Looking for recommendations on how to evaluate replacement of on-premise server with new server or go to cloud
Moderators - my response to the "opinion-based" thing is to say that I am looking not for the solution but rather for the ways in which I should consider the options. Identifying options for consideration is more of a fact-based exercise than opinion. It would be opinion if I was asking which was better, cloud or premise. I will re-word my title and question to better express this intent.

Could you post that as an answer? I don't agree about user vs sysadmin question. Lets say I changed the problem statement to say the remote admin configured ACLs on his Internet router/firewall to deny my range. In that case you could prove this conclusively by using network tools. I felt it was worth asking this question to see if there were options. In other words, the fact that the answer to the question in this scenario is "no" doesn't invalidate the question or make it a user question.

I updated the question to say that I am unable to communicate with that person. I am looking for a technical answer.

comment Unable to ping VirtualBox guest with Bridged Networking
Part 2 of 2 - ...Just like how in the physical world you can have different IP ranges running on the same segment. So shouldn't having two nics (one physical and one virtual) which are bridged, and with the physical one having multiple IP addresses-one in each subnet-shouldn't this allow me to ping without having to go to an external router and back?

comment Unable to ping VirtualBox guest with Bridged Networking
Part 1 of 2 - I updated my question above and struck my last sentence. I can't ping in any config at all. About your stmt: "When you bridge the VM NIC works 'in parallel' to the hosts NIC on the same LAN. That means that BOTH machines (host and guest) are in the SAME subnet and should use an ip-address in that range.", my understanding is that the bridge is by definition a layer 2 concept. So bridging the two NICs wouldn't put them in the same IP subnet, but rather the same "physical" network...
