Guest can’t ping host OS |VMware Communities

Hello,

I would like help getting my two Windows 7 guest OS VMs to ping the Windows 7 host. 

Background:

  • Host is Windows 7 64 bit.
  • Guests are both Windows 7 32 bit, recently converted from VPC. 
  • I have both guests functioning normally other than this issue. 
  • both guests are configured to use bridged network
  • bridge network (vmnet0) is configured to use a single wireless adapter, not automatic

 

What I have tried:

  • firewalls on both guest and host are turned off
  • verified host and guests are assigned expected IPs and are on same subnet
  • pinging from guest to guest works both ways
  • pinging from host to both guests works
  • guests can ping router
  • guests can reach the internet, browse google, etc.
  • VPN on guests are off
  • guests can ping other PCs on network
  • other PCs on network can ping host
  • other PCs on network can ping guests
  • verified vmnetbridge service is running
  • verified adapter related registry keys
  • I briefly had success when I was playing with enabling Internet Connection Sharing on my host’s wireless adapter settings.  I could not understand how that should help, and while I was experimenting, turning it off and on, it stopped working for me. 
  • rebooted VMs
  • tested using both IP and name, resolving name with hosts file

 

Here is my vmx file for one guest, they are both similar:

Your time and advice is greatly appreciated.  I have spent much time researching and testing but I am stuck.  I am a newbie to vmware.

 

Thanks,

Glenn
