Yes, this is an old problem, and a big problem that I've tried to
tackle many times. And as I help people at the university move to
Linux, this is one of only two big problems that we're having in
getting rid of Windows.
In VMWare, the network connection is NAT (share the host's IP address).

I have turned those off, of course. Other Linux distros, even those
without a firewall or SELinux, such as Ubuntu, also cannot connect.
