can you ping the host from the guest? php is for another forum

yes i can ping the host from the guest and vice versa but through wireless media only.thanks for your information about php. i have one question..is it possible for Cerberus FTP server software to detect guest vmware machines. because when i install that software it only detect my host computer only.

of course it will not detect guest machines
you need an ftp daemon on the guest machine if you want ftp access there.

if there is a ping, then communication errors are gone, so you need to open a new thread for the php or ftp issue
