Sounds like you are using
internal networking for the Virtual Machine. If you can change the adapter in VMWare to
bridged mode instead, your Solaris machine will be on the same network/subnet as your PC and laptop.
If that is not an option, then you need to:

- You might also need to enable IP routing on the PC running VMWare (assuming VMWare Workstaion or Player)
To do this in Windows, run regedit and browse to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\ Services\Tcpip\Parameters\IPEnableRouter and set the value to
To do this in Linux, from a console run
sudo sysctl -w net.ipv4.ip_forward=1
