    Insisted he was the expert and that what I suggested as the way to solve the problem wasn't possible. Said I should find someone else to work on it if I wasn't going to do it his way. I ended up getting past the point he was stuck on in about an hour myself - using the method I had suggested in the first place.

    mpankov's reply:

    I had setup the vm server as per the client request except for networking and the services depended on networking, because the ip for the vm had to be rerouted by the ISP as it was in a different subnet and had to use different gw than the physical host. Asked the client to contact his ISP to reroute the ip. Client responded that contacting ISP was unacceptable and that I couldn"t do the job as I couldn"t get networking working.
