ping/connect to windows xp mode virtual pc

I need to set up a web server and sql 200 server on my windows xp mode virtual pc.

I cannot ping the windows xp mode virtual pc from windows 7, bit I CAN ping the windows 7 IP from the windows xp mode virtual pc

There is not anitvirus running on the windows xp mode virtual pc (yet) and I tried disabling the xp firewall which made no difference. It is so far a very plain vanilla install.

What to do?

Thanks!

I have the same issue

I have a virtual pc running XP and it does ping the W7 but from W7 I can't ping the XP virtual machine. I need to do that to use tools installed on W7 using the oracle database installed on the xp virtual machine.
Thanks for any help

Works for me. My Win 7 box has a 192.168.2.3 IP and shows XP Mode IP as 192.168.56.1 while XP Mode window shows it as 192.168.2.4. I can ping either 192.168.56.1 or 192.168.2.4 successfully.

ipconfig /all from XP Mode window:

Can not Ping Public IP from XP Virtual

This is the same but different I think. I can ping back and forth from XP virtual and Windows 7. I can ping a public IP from WIndows 7 but not XP virtual. Do I need a route stement in the virtual? The XP Virtual does get to the internet with no problem.

I don't have a route statement setup and it works for me, both UNC and IP Address:
