Hi I have 2 computers networked and I was previously able to retrieve data from both using both.
Everything is enabled to share correctly.

The problem is that I cannot connect to my host computer using the other one.
It keeps saying that it is inaccessible. It says that I might not have permission to access the network.
I also cannot ping the host computer through the other one.
I am connected via dsl to my host computer and networked through a Linksys Wireless router.
(Also I did have to repair my connection in my VM machine and it renamed the Ip adrres on that machine.Could this have an effect on the network connection?)


Here is my ipconfig /all

How are you trying to connect to the host? What app do you use?

I would re verify since you have so many connections that the proper NIC is being used to connect to the host system and that they are in the same subnet.

With all those different connections and IP addresses maybe you are trying to connect to a system via a NIC that is using a different IP subnet...

Hello 98springer and thenotch.
Nice to meet you both and thank you for your replies. :whistling:

I have located the problem.
I disabled the VM network connections and then tried to connect and "voila" access granted.
I should have thought of that earlier.
Anyway again thank you for your help.
