Just out of curiosity... is your VMimage set to NAT or bridged mode for networking? I've experienced issues with NAT mode similar to yours.

First check if you can ping from the host to the guest VM and visa versa. If you cannot, from VMware Workstation, go to Edit > Virtual Network Editor and select NAT network (typically VMnet8). Check 'Connect a host virtual network adapter to this network' if it is not already checked and then configure the new adapter.

free VMWARE clone for windows?
I'm looking for a free alternative to VMWARE, that will function in the same way. Bochs is not an option, and I can't seem to find any other viable software that will run on Windows.
