Windows 7: Virtual PC cannot see host network

Virtual PC cannot see host network

I have done as you instructed. The WinXP VPC I set up can see the internet but for some reason it does not see the host Windows 7 machine. When I ping the host from the VPC I get no response. I can ping the VPC from the host machine. I intend to run the ArcInfo license of ArcGIS Desktop on the VPC. That license requires communication with a license server. The license server is running on my host machine. If I can't ping the host then I won't be able to use the license server.

I have done this on another machine with WinXP as both the host machine and the VPC and the VPC can see the host via ping.

I've turned off all the firewalls but no joy.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi DG, welcome to the Seven Forums.

That tutorial is quite straight forward, networking between a VPC virtual machine and host system should work following those instructions. Check if this thread could give you more ideas, steps told in post #2 & post #6 give detailed information.

Hi Kari,
No Joy. I read thru the post you referenced. I think I've already done all that. I just went thru changing the workgroup name to the default name "WORKGROUP" on both machines but that didn't work. I'm thinking it must be something with the firewall on the Windows 7 host machine but I'm not seeing it. Again, I can ping the WinXP virtual machine from the Windows 7 host. I cannot ping the Windows 7 host from the WinXP virtual. I've also tried using the Loopback adapter but that isn't working either.

Maybe I should reinstall VPC on the host. any issues with doing that?

Is your XP virtual machine the free XP Mode downloadable from Microsoft, or do you have setup XP to a vm using your own installation media?

Do you have installed and enabled the integration components?

I downloaded WinXP mode executable from the MSDN site. I do have integration components installed and enabled.

Very strange. If integration is enabled, XP Mode is using the host's NIC as network adapter, and both host and XP Mode are in same workgroup or domain, it really should work.

I have to admit I have not a single idea now. I don't know what to suggest.

It turns out the problem was caused by the CheckPoint VPN software I had installed on the host machine. Once I removed it from the host I could ping the host from a Virtual PC/WinXP Mode session. However, now I can't ping a Virtual PC session from the host machine.
