Check your firewall/ipf. Have you tried using both IP address and hostname? Which VM are you using, for example virtual box?

i am using VMware......
Tried with hostname as well, result it same.

Do we need to make a private connection between the network adaptor in vmware..?? so that both machine can communicate?

I don't believe that the problem lies within both Solaris VMs or IPfilter itself .
I believe the problem lies within virtual NICs configuration.
I would recommend to bridge both virtual NICs to physical as a test at first , the you can go with advanced configuration .
Easily make both virtual NIC's bridged to the physical NIC and assign them same IP ranges and same subnet.
Anyways you can disable IPFilter as follows
# svcadm disable ipfilter

post here again
