    Bridged connection problem, can ping but cannot telnet !

    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.

    First step is to check the firewall. Ensure that what you want to do is allowed.
    Step two is to ensure the host you are trying to connect to allows the connection.
