On windows no. On solaris I don't now.
I try to configure with the solaris management console, with the same result.
I think that the problem is the phisical network (on the sun). I don't know why can't out the conexions.
The conexion can entry, to solaris, but the solaris can connect out
Observation: The windows xp have a proxy to connect internet, but I think that not necessary configure the proxy in the virual sun, because the 2 machines are in the same network segment

Solved. The problem was the gateway. When I put ipconfig in win xp I see:

On the solaris I put the ip, but when I try to do ping to i don't have response. In the vmware virtual network Editor i can see NAT --> gateway i put this gateway and works ok
Note: curiosly I can't do ping to VMware Network Adapter
