    I suggest you look in VMWare at what network settings you assigned for your VM. I'd think you've set Host-Only and it needs to be Bridged so it gets an IP 192.x.x.x from your DHCP(Router?).
    I am using VirtualBox.

    I've had a quick look at the manual but without downloading and installing its difficult to troubleshoot.

    It would appear that in NAT mode that there are some known issues surrounding the ICMP implementation but it shouldn't be an issue here.

    OK, forgetting VirtualBox for a minute, run

    iptables -L
    and report that back, along with checking

    system-config-securitylevel
    to ensure SELinux and the Firewall are disabled.

    Or install logmein (on your host PC) and let me have a look.

    I use VirtualBox on my home Windows XP Home machine. Did the VirtualBox network bridge install okay - under "Network Connections" (or whatever the heck the Vista equivalent is these days) do you have connections labelled "VirtualBox Host Interface 1" and "Network Bridge" or similar, and does your Local Area Connection connection status read "Connected, Bridged"?

    A network "bridge" is basically the software equivalent of a switch - you're plugging a bunch of network connections (one real, others virtual) into a virtual switch so your virtual connections can all share your real connection.
