open the command prompt. type the following on client and server both VM's (run as administrator)


ipconfig /flushdns


ipconfig /registerdns



also you can turn off the firewall on both Vm's or you can allow only icmp packets to be sent and received.


open cmd prompt > netsh firewall set icmp 8 enable. (execute this on both client and server). Also make sure that the client's Preferred DNS server IP is IP address of the Server VM.
