    Virtualbox: Win XP Guest OS Network (what did I miss?)

    OK. I've been through the virtualbox tutorial here and read through others. I'm trying to get my work VPN to work in WinXP as the guest OS

    Link 1

    and the virtualbox documentation on help.ubuntu.com

    I created the bridge (br0) and the host (tap1) and bridged them together (at least I think I did)

    When I go into Virtual box and set the network adapter to host and use "tap1" I'm not getting an ethernet connection anymore.

    Here's my ifconfig. what else do I need to show? I can't figure out what I'm missing

    Code:

    Re: Virtualbox: Win XP Guest OS Network (what did I miss?)

    Hi, here is my working ipconfig. I have created a vbox0 for the bridge as descriped in the manual. It works fine.

    Re: Virtualbox: Win XP Guest OS Network (what did I miss?)

    are there special network settings on the guest OS that need to be done? It's just set at DHCP from the TCP/IP protocol right now in XP

    Worth trying a fixed IP address in your guest if you are not able to pick up one with DHCP?

    I have a page on this--it's not really Ubuntu oriented but the principle should be the same.

    (In part, as was said, the guest O/S probably wants a static IP.)

    Edit--it might help to put the link

    I got mine to work by typing sysctl net.ipv4.ip_forward=1 in the terminal. Then setting the network setting in VB to NAT. After reading the manual, I still can't get it to work when attached to a host interface though.

    As I said in http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=724783
    let's try to keep it on one thread so I don't get confused.

    You are trying to get wireless bridging to work, correct?
    (Please answer on the other thread, unless this is about wired bridging. In that case, it probably merits two threads.)
