What would be a reason why a virtual machine computer can not PING another virtual machine computer?

Question by junior: What would be a reason why a virtual machine computer can not PING another virtual machine computer?
I have 2 hosts machines and each machine is running a windows 7 as a virtual machine with VMWare. The settings in VMware have been to change to bridge connections. If hostA has guest. And hostB has a guest and the guestA can PING its own host(A) and hostB, why can’t GuestA PING with guestB?

    I think it is a permissions problem, you can try the GUEST user permissions to open

    Host B can ping its own interface? If I read that correct it leads me to ask how do you have the computers setup to communicate? Are you using a switch, router, or directly connected to one another using a ethernet cable? If directly connected make sure you are using a crossover ethernet cable. But its hard to say what the issue is until you can specify how the computers are setup to communicate. Let me know! I wanna help.
