The virtual machine is sitting on on a bridged connection The host machine is sitting on I can ping the virtual machine from the host I can't ping the host machine from the virtual server, nor can I access any of the services on it (SMTP/Fileshares/etc).

I have tried rebooting both Vmware and the virtual machine but it seems to make no difference. I have tried a repair on both of the adaptors and no difference.


EDIT: The Virtual machine has no issue seeing everything else on the network, and vica versa.

This was a physical issue in the end!
