    I'm running SUSE 8.2 as guest on a WinXP host, using Connectix 5.2.
    Networking is set to virtual switch. I can see from the DHCP allocation
    tables that an IP address has been allocated to the guest PC, and I can ping
    that address from other machines on the network, including from the host.
    From the guest, I can ping all addresses on the network *except* the host.
    What could cause this to happen? Other addresses on the network can ping
    the host ok, just not the guest PC.

  2. What Virtual Switch networking mode are you using for the guest?
