    Can't ping VM on host


    Hi folks,

    Host - Fedora 12 64bit
    KVM
    VM - Windows Server 2008 64 bit
    bridge-utils


    VM can ping host and Internet but host can't ping VM.

    I set VM static IP 192.168.0.205.

    It turns out dynamic IP - 192.168.0.55

    On host:
    $ ping -c3 192.168.0.55
    fails

    Pls advise how to fix the problem. TIA

    B.R.

    is there a firewall on guest VM that is blocking incoming ICMP request?

    Hi

    Thanks for your advice.

    Reconfig Windows firewall - uncheck Local Area Connection

    Host can ping VM now.
