VLANs in GbE2c and Cisco 6509

Can someone help me for following issue.
We just installed a HP GbE2c switch and server blades in C7000 chassis. My project is to install ESXi/VMs in server blade and each VM will sit in different VLANs. ( VLAN 95 & VLAN 176). These VMs will communicate with company LAN. In GbE2c, the downlink to server blade is port 12 and uplink port to Cisco 6509 is port 20. On the Cisco 6509 side, the link to to HP GbE2c switch is port 9/41. Sofar, I have tried
1. Cisco 6509 - port 6/41: set to Native VLAN 1, enter CATOS cmd: "set trunk 9/41 on"
2. GbE2C:
port 12: downlink to blade
VLAN Tagging: enabled ,
PVID: 1,
PVID Tagging: enabled
port 20: uplink to cisco
VLAN Tagging: enabled ,
PVID: 1,
PVID Tagging: enabled

The end result was
"I could not ping outside world from any VM created in blade server"
Assume all setup in VM are correct, what did I do wrong on GbE2c configuration ?

Thanks a lot for your help
