The IP can be resolved, and hosts file is exactly as mentioned in tutorial, but still you can not communicate between localvmhost and vm-guest1. I always get message that it's unreachable, it's like they would be on different networks. I was suggested to reconfigure network and using subnet 255.255.255.0 instead of 255.255.0.0. There might be problems with VMWare using different subnet. I will write in few days how it went. >> Also found a problem with vcl.sql.
