How do i connect linux guest OS to a windows guest OS in vmware?


I've set up an ldap server in the linux machine (opensuse)
would like to connect it to the windows xp as a virtual
lan
liux machine config

ip -1.1.1.2

Subnet mask-250.250.250.0

gateway 1.1.1.3

windows machine config


ip 1.1.1.1

subnet mask 255.255.255.0

gateway 1.1.1.5


am able to ping with windows machine and not with the linux machine



And can i know what the gateway address should be

i guess it should be with a zero

like 1.1.1.1

and i also that 1.1.1.0 means a broadcast address
may be thats why linux does not ping ??

Since you can ping windows you already know that a two part and two direction communication worked. Why are you even trying to ping the other way?

it's hostname should be known by the dns server or on the local system somewhere /etc/hosts for example. I always just use IP addresses.

it can ping to that ip address so i guess no question of firewall

i have added the line 1.1.1.3 ldapserver which is the hostname of linuxmachine

in the host file of windows


1.1.1.3 ldapserver

does not work

i would like to know coz I have a Business itelligence software which likes to only have a hostname coz ip is not working i believe in this case i tried with the ip address

any way out ??

if you can ping the linux machine from windows by IP and not by hostname then it's not put in the host file the right way. the traffic going out of your windows machine should be the same as it would be if you ping the IP, name conversation to IP takes place on the system itself.
