Hello Experts,

Environment:
SUSE Linux 11 SP4 running under VM Workstation 15
SAP: SAP ECC6 EHP8
DB: Oracle 121

I am new to SUSE Linux and I had a peculiar problem to connect from SAPGUI to instance running under VM.
I have installed SAP6 EHP8 under my laptop and installation completed successfully.
Also installed SAP GUI 7.60 on my laptop, but now the problem is I am unable to connect my SAP instance running under VM.
I have googled it and tried to fix it but not succeeded. Steps I followed are:

1. I have added entries under Windows ---host file .
2. I am getting ping response with FQDN hostname.
3. SUSE end - No firewall service is running, currently it is disabled state. Do I need to open anything here...???? (I am not network expert either)
4. But when I tried to connect SAP GUI to SAP instance, it is saying partner not reached xxxxxxxxxxxx.xxx.com:sapgw00.
5. My sap instance is running absolutely without having any problem in SUSE VM.

Somewhere I am missing my network connection from Windows Desktop to VM--Linux.
Could anyone help me what are the steps I should follow or cross check.
I will share logs later this evening if any one can help on this.
