Cannot connect to Red Hat Linux VM on Windows 7 laptop


Hi
Apologize for posting a similar topic if posted & resolved earlier .I have a RH5 Linux VM server with static IP running on Workstation 6 on Windows 7 host in my Dell Laptop. Installed DB2express-C ( IBM freeware DB2 )in the Linux and configured to listen at port 50000 . DB2 is working fine. Thinking to install IBM Data Studio ( freeware ) on windows 7 to connect to DB2 on linux vm . But before that tested and ping is not working. Read several forums around . Tried Bridge with VMnet0 , changed the /etc/samba/smb.conf file adding workgroup = WORKGROUP after installing samba . Did not work . Tried with adding alias to the static IP in /etc/hosts file , but that did not work too . well , not to mention .. am not very proficient in networking tools in Linux or Windows.. anyway , here are the further details of my ipconfig and ifconfig output .....any help will be highly apprecaited...

VM and windows box are in different networks and there isn't any routing in place.
Simplest way is to change you ip settings on the VM. Change it to 192.168.1.xxx and you should be ok
