I have a physical machine (first pm) which has VMware Workstation 14 Pro. By the configurations and settings I can ping among all the machines and any internet address from them as normally.
However, when I connect another physical machine (second pm) to first physical machine's network, it can't ping to the first physical machine's VMnet8 and other virtual machines on VMnet8 but it can ping to anywhere else on the internet. Interestingly, virtual machines and first physical machine can ping to the second physical machine.
By the way, all of the machines are enabled for in and out ping echos in firewall. After a bit view I discovered the second physical machine uses the first physical machine's default gateway only. I tried changing the second physical machine's default gateway as first physical machine's VMnet8 gateway but it didn't work. What can I do for this ?
