    When you use putty to access the server, do you use it from the system running the VMware server?
    If it's from the system that is running the VMware server, make sure that you use the correct IP (NOT or localhost)
    To get the IP from the server, start VMware, and within it, type ifconfig

    and besides, IP numbers do have dots "." in it and not commas ","
