Linux guest on Vmware is not communicating to other guest machines

Hi All,

Am newbie to linux! I have recently installed Linux guest on windows xP host and 2 windows server`s. I have used the networking as " Host only", ping is successful on both the windows servers. But Am not able to ping Linux server from the windows and vice versa.

Can someone help me to configure the linux guest to communicate with windows guest machines.

Linux version is: RedHat Enterprise Linux 5
