Connections from a VMware Workstation virtual machine is blocked

Hi.
I have setting like this:

[ol]- My computer is connected to a network switch; it has CIS 8.2 installed

  • Other computers on the network have no problem connecting to my shared file; I have no problems connecting to them either
  • I have a VMware Workstation virtual machine running Windows. It connects to the switch like an ordinary machine and receives its IP from it.
  • My physical machine and all other computers on the network have no problems connecting to it.[/ol]

Here is the problem: As long as the firewall module of CIS 8.2 is enabled, the virtual machine can connect to the internet and all other machines on the network, except mine. Once I disable the firewall, the virtual machine can connect and see shared files. CIS firewall log does not report having blocked anything.
