    Hi Everyone,

    I am experimenting with Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 on my personal computer.

    To do so I have setup Hyper-V Server in a dual boot configuration with Windows 7; this way my wife can use our PC as normal (to perform banking, look at Facebook, etc), and I can use the PC for a learning tool.

    At the moment whilst I have successfully setup Hyper-V Server I am experiencing some difficulty accessing it with the Remote Administration Tools. My specific challenge is networking related, and more specifically caused by the fact that I am running VMware Workstation on a laptop which I am then attempting to connect to the Hyper-V Server with!

    Here is a diagram which better explains my setup!

    hyper-text transfer protocol (full colon) // i58 (dot) tinypic (dot) com/4fti8p (dot) jpg

    My Hyper-V Server is on the I.P. address 192.168.0.1, my Laptop Host is on 192.168.0.2, and my Laptop Guest is on 192.168.0.3.

    I can ping too and from the Hyper-V Server through the Laptop Host (192.168.0.2). I can also ping from the Laptop Host to the Laptop Guest, however I cannot ping from the Laptop Guest (192.168.0.3) directly to or from the Hyper-V Server (192.168.0.1).

    Can anybody think of any issues which would prevent a Guest O/S (running in VMware Workstation) from being able to ping to the Hyper-V Server?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Kind Regards,

    Davo
