I have just installed Slackware 10 into a new virtual machine in VMware running on Windows XP. Everything seems to be ok, but outgoing network traffic just doesn't work.
Trying ping www.google.com
gives Host unreachable
Trying ping to another machine on our network also gets no response
Accessing Google in a web browser doesn't work either.
Trying to ping the VM from another machine on the network also fails.
But pinging the VM's IP address from itself works (well, it has to doesn't it?)
I looked at the output from /etc/ifconfig eth0 and it shows RX bytes, so it appears that the VM is seeing network traffic.
There is no firewall active on the VM (iptables just shows the three headings for rules, but no rules - I assume that means all traffic is allowed).
The VM has a static IP address, so its not a DHCP problem.
I'm stuck. Can anyone help me please?
