[Spread-users] Spread with VMware : Multiple Segment

Spread daemons will not communicate unless they have the same  
effective configuration.  It is not clear from your email if all the  
daemons have the exact same configuration or not, or if you are  
intentionally trying to run different systems in parallel and bridge  
between them externally.

The same effective configuration means that in their configuration  
files they have the same segments, listed in the same order, where  
each segment has the same machines listed in the same order.  In  
effect, they have to have the same configuration in order to  
communicate.  The configuration file doesn't have to be exactly the  
same.  For example, different daemons can have different reporting  
flags enabled, different logging parameters, different comments, etc.,  
but in order to communicate they need the same communication

I have 2 machines one acting as an email gateway and other as an email
store/web server. The IP address are:

Gateway (s26) :
Store (s25) :

they both have spread installed and does communicates with s26 without
any problem. The config on both the machines are:

Spread_Segment {

s25 also acts as vmware host and has one guest OS running on it with
the following IP assignment
host (s25) :
guest :

What I want is that a spread message sent from this guest should be
received by s25 and s26. the guest config file says:

Spread_Segment {

and s25 config file is:

Spread_Segment {

Spread_Segment {

but its not even possible to send message from guest to host.

What is it that i am doing wrong. I have, disabled, firewall and
selinux on both the machines.
