Winpe & Vmware Networking Issues

Recommended Posts

Rambler    0

Hi, i'm trying to test my unattended winxp install, but i'm having some troubles with VMWare. I've created new virtual machine (using host-only networking), set the cdrom to WinPE iso on my hdd. Machine boots fine from the iso image, it gets an IP address (192.168.119.128). But there is the problem - i can't connect (ping or map network drive) to my host machine. VMWare is working fine - i checked the IP addresses of my machine and there's also a 192.168.119.1 listed under VMnet1.

And as for why i want to connect to my host pc - that's because i'm testing installations from distribution share.

MS file and printer sharing is installed and enabled on my pc. I even tried disabling my firewall, that didn't help either.

Any suggestions?

Oh well, i better test some more next time before posting.

The problem was i enabled my firewall again before trying to mount the network drive and the firewall was blocking it.

Sorry for the wasted topic.
