Communication between Host(RHEL5) and VMware Guest OS(RHEL5)

I have installed RHEL5 as guest on vmware on HOST having RHEL5 only.
I am unable to ping between each other.

On host ifconfig command show etho,lo,vmnet1,vmnet8 details.
I have given both host and guest in same IP cleass.

On Vmware i tried with vmnet0,vmnet1 and vmnet8, but no gain.

Can anyone please tell me what i doing wrong??

My ultimate goal is to make a server-client pair for various scenarios like DHCP,NFS,NIS,FTP,etc etc.

I've never used vmware (I use virtualbox) but with vbox there are a number of networking modes. How is yours set up? Does the virtual machine have an actual IP address on your network?

No, I have given the host and guest both a static IP in same class.
