Virtual Box Bridged Adapter can’t Ping Host Guest

I have a windows 10 Host machine running Virtual Box 5.2.22 the IpAdress is 192.168.1.24 mask 255.255.255.0 (class c). I have a guest OS windows 10 with IP 192.168.1.252 mask 255.255.255.0 (class c). The adapter is bridged to the wired ethernet NIC. I can not ping Host to Guest or Vice Versa.

If I set it up to NAT – I can ping host < > Guest. This does not work in my situation because I need it to pass Ethernet/IP (Ethernet/ Industrial Protocol) traffic and using NAT does not seem to allow this; as all my software that uses this protocol can not find the devices on the network and use the proprietary commands associated for device identification.

I would like to be able to set up a working bridged connection – where I can access everything just like it was the host machine.

Windows Firewall is off in the guest. In the host private network firewall is off, Inbound rules are set to allow pings.

So what do I need to do in order to accomplish two way communication and the guest to be able to bridge with the host?
