I've installed the newest available simulator for VMware Player and have successfully startet it. (Windows 7)
The simulator have access to internet(I launched a web page from the browser)
But I can't connect to the device either by pinging it in cmd-prompt or from the
plugin in eclipse.
It says in the simulator: Use development mode ON and Development Address 169.254.0.1
Solved! Go to Solution.

Are you able to ping the simulator's IP address? Do you have a VPN connection or firewall that could be blocking the connection?

I'm not able to ping the simulator.
I do not have a VPN connection or firewall.
What network mode should I use on the virtual machine? ( NAT, bridged, host only.. )

The default NAT is recommended. Is that what you are using?

I'm using NAT, and I've discovered the problem.
I tried to use the IP-address from settings - security - development mode, this showed(always) 169.254.0.1.
The development icon on the home screen gives the correct IP-address and I am now able to connect to the device.
Thank you for your help.
Btw, is that a bug?

The value under the security setting is the IP address that will be used when a PlayBook is connected via USB. You can connect the debugger using the device's WiFi IP address or USB IP address.
In the case of the simulator, the USB connection is not supported so you need to connect using the simulated WiFi connection.
The icon on the home screen will show all IP addresses you can use to connect to (it'll show both WiFi and USB IP addresses if both are available).
