    Perplexed about networking 2 Virtual Machines in VPC2007

    Hello,

    I am trying to get 2 VMs to see each other in VPC2007; I am using Local Only
    as the networking options on these VMs. Both VMs are Windows Server 2003
    Enterprise machines. I have one server running as a AD domain with the
    following IP config:

    Server01
    IP address: 192.168.200.1
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway: 192.168.200.254
    DNS Servers: 192.168.200.1

    The other server is setup with the following:

    Server02
    IP Address: 192.168.200.2
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway: 192.168.200.254
    DNS Server: 192.168.200.1

    Server01 can ping Server02, but the ping doesn't work the other way around.
    I want to be able to join Server02 to the domain setup on Server01 but I
    can't because it doesn't see it on the network.

    I am thinking I setup the networking wrong . . . Can anyone help me get this
    resolved?

    Thanks!

    That is probably a firewall problem. Ping uses ICMP echo.

    How would I disable or check the firewall? The service doesn't appear to be
    running at all.

    Thank you.
