Please help about vmware guest and linux host


Dear
I am new user of RHEL5. Very recent I have done a server course on it. To practice that in home I've installed it on my pc and for testing I installed vmware workstation 6. I have no internet connection. As per the course training I configured a DNS server, a web server on my linux host. On linux host every server is working nice and all testing command like "nslookup" results best. But the problem is for the guest. As guest I installed xp and linux. From the guest I can ping to host and host form guest. But not get any server from guest. I edit the resolv.conf of linux guest as
search halimulalam.com
nameserver 192.168.20.2

I use vmnet1 as host only networking.
vmnet1 ip is 192.168.20.2
and the guests are xp 192.168.20.3, and linux 192.168.20.4

I also make a forward and reverse zone file for DNS
and make entry of the guest. No good result, but only ping


PLEASE HELP ME TO GET ALL SERVER CONNECTIVITY
AND ALSO PARDON ME TO DISTURB YOU NOW AND ALSO LATER

- do you turn on any firewall on your host ?
- make sure you configured named.conf on the right listening interface, on this case should be vmnet1(192.168.20.2)

post your named.conf, iptables rules(if any) and your listening port here.
