VMware Workstation and Norton Protection Center

If you use Norton Anti-Virus you might run into a problem with your VMware Workstation guests accessing the network. There is an easy fix that isn't obvious at first. First go into options for Norton Anti-Virus and select "Internet Worm Protection". Then select the "Program Control" button. Now Add a rule for C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Workstation\bin\vmware-vmx.exe set to "allow". That's it.

It wasn't obvious to me because I was looking for "firewall" in the options. "Program Control" doesn't make any sense either.
