are you running a firewall on your linux guest?

Code:
service iptables stop

Code:
/etc/init.d/iptables stop

may be different depending on your distribution
# 3  
I don't see any way for your hosts to be communicating, Windows has no route to 192.168.29 .
# 4  
funksen : no there ain`t any firewall running on the linux guest.. I tried your stopping the iptables , but no luck


Corona688 : could you please help me in adding the route to in windows
# 5  
Where did your server get 192.168.29.128 from? Is that configured statically?

128 is a special address which you shouldn't configure a network adapter to...
# 6  
The 192.168.29.0/24 network is configured to the vmnet8 network, which hides all machines attached to it behind a NAT. So all connections made from within the VM appear to be coming from your Windows host, and the machines aren't reachable from the outside (including the Windows host). Switch the NIC settings to use the bridged vmnet0 network, and the VM will appear as just another machine in your LAN.
# 7  
Corona688 : IP allocation has been done by vm DHCP

pludi : vmnet0 is already set to bridged
