it really isn't that difficult....it is actually more difficult working with the desktop version....you are probably over complicating your networking.
Can you access your host from a computer on your network?
Is your guests on the same network?
Did you load the vmtools on the guest os?
What ip do you get in your vm?
If you can get outside access through your vm, you should be able to get on the network if it is on the same subnet.
And what physical nic did you connect to your vswitch that you put your vms on?
So for example
I have a Lan vswitch that the physical nic in the host is connected to my real world lan switch
Then I have a wan vswitch that host nic is connected to my cable modem so that my VM router can route and firewall traffic between internet and my vms and my physical devices as well.

If your clients are not getting an IP - how and the hell do you think there going to be on an network
Is LOCAL loopback - that is not anything, changing mask is not going to do anything.
What network should your VMs be on? Is this esxi box located somewhere colo or something - or is on your local network?
What IP do you use to access your esxi box via client? Is it public or private address?

edit: sc302, if he did not have nic assigned to the VM - how would it even have a loopback address?
"but I do not think it has SSH or FTP installed"
What your VM? Or some server on you schools network? If a VM - how would you not know if? You stated its "my linux server"
So are you VM's on your network or not? Do they have a IP on your segment? You do understand esxi has a firewall built into it that could be causing you some grief depending on what your wanting to do exactly as far as ssh, ftp, etc.
