problems with Networking with SUSE 9.1 guest on VMWARE / W2K host


Hello,

maybe this is the wrong forum, but i guess here are all the people who know about ip's routing etc.


I have two PC's, one running Windows XP, and one running W2K.
Each is having VMWARE 4.5.2 workstation installled.
1) is an Athlon 1.4 Ghz Dekstop equiped with a Realtek 8139 Etherenet card
2) is Thinkpad, with the build in INTEl PRO 10/100 VE Network card
Both are connected to the same SMC7004BR router connected to DSL.
Both are hosting a SUSE 9.1 guest systems.

1) gets an IP adress using brdiged network, and it also gets an IP using the NAT from VMWARE and it connects just fine to the internet using both methods

2) does not.
a) when I use bridged network, I do not get an IP from the router
b) if I use NAT I get an IP from the VMWARE DHCP.
- i can ping the VMWARE adapter vmnet8's IP
- i can ping the VMWARE gateway
- i can ping the SMC router gateway IP
- i can ping yahoo dot com

however, if i try to connect to ... for example google dot de, the HTTP request is sent to google, and the answer also reaches the ethernet adapter on the thinkpad (I can see this using Ethereal on both host (W2K) and guest (SUSE) OS.

So it seems to be possible to send packets everywhere, but when the reply comes in, W2K does not know where to send it to.

I disable all other adapters on the W2K system (so that only INTEL PRO adapter and the two VMNET adapters are open) (there is a virtual adapters installed for VPN and a Wireless card built in)

If I force SUSE with a fixed IP directly into the SMC routerd network, and use the SMC router directly as gateway i can browse the web. So it must be W2K which is not able to distribute the packets on the backpath.
(I don't want this solution, because this is a notebook, and the internet connection should not depend on my home LAN, but should also work, when I am in another network ... for example in my company network, i cannot take an IP all by myself ... our network guys won't be happy about that)

I know that WinXP has the Internet Gateway, and therefore seems to be more flexible internally, but what do I have to do, to reach the same behaviour on W2K ?

I would be grateful for any suggestions ...

P.S.: the firewall on the W2K host is off
