Firewall - My Network Connections (McAfee LiveSafe 16.0 R32)

Hi,

Please refer to the attached screen capture.. 

Anyone has any idea why trusted Networks listed under My Network Connections with Network Types as Work or Public will be blocked/denied? 

When I modified the Network Type to Home, the traffic will be allowed to pass. 

I thought the Networks listed under My Network Connections are Network which I trust? As least this is what the description in My Network Connections mentioned - "You can decide which network to trust, and for how long".

Btw, the mentioned connection is for VMnet 1 (VM on Host-only connection running on VMware workstation). Trying to PING between Host and VM. 

Can somebody explain why is this so and the unusual behaviour? Or am I missing some other settings that has to be configured?
