    Cant share/access the folder from Win2k3 server problem

    Two points...

    1) Pinging an IP doesn't "prove that one machine is connected to another."

    2) Is this the NAT network in VMWare? VMWare server reserves .1 and .2 for the host machine and gateway address, respectively. So using the .1 address for a guest VM would not be a good idea.

    How does the Linux machine know that "ucserver" should resolve to 150.150.150.1? Did you put that in the hosts file? If not, there is no name resolution for "ucserver." Try using //150.150.150.1/Sharename.

    *IF* that still doesn't work, move your Windows 2003 guest (ucserver) to another IP besides .1 or .2

    HTH.
