Not able to connect to BB10 Simulator from outside my windows machine



I have installed BB10 Simulator 10.0.9 on my windows machine.

Am even able to run the simulator successfully and its getting the IP address from the DHCP server in our organization. Network connection for simulator is set to Bridged mode.


From my windows machine, when I ping to the IP address set to the simulator, i am able to get the ping response. However, if I try to ping the same IP address from outside my windows machine, say another windows machine, I don't get any response for the Ping.


Also, my application tries to connect to a linux server when it is run. Even that is not able to connect to it. The same application when run on another simulator on another machine it works fine, is able to respond to ping and even connect to the linux server.


Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong in my VMWare configurations or PC configuration that might be preventing from getting it connected properly?
