http://www.linuxforums.org – Hi there, I have a problem with guess host use Bridged Network on VMWare. I install the guest OS CentOS ( )on host Windows XP SP2 (, I try to use bridged-connection so the guess can appears as an additional server on the same physical Ethernet network as my host. My problem is: My guess can ping any ip on network, access internet, access other services on my XP host, BUT on my host I cannot telnet any port to the guess, when I "telnet 22" the terminal turn black and wait something. Any help ? Many thanks. Note: I turned off firewall on guest & host. OpenSSH is running on guest. (HowTos)
