View Full Version : [ubuntu] Need help making a bridge in Virtual Box 2.1.4

Hey guys,

need help. I have U-8.04LTS and have Vista as a virtual machine in Virtual Box 2.1.4

What I need is to bridge the Vista Machine, so I can see the Vista VM from the internal network (other physical workstations) inside the office.

I found a lot of how-to tutorials regarding bridging on the web, but most of them were based on VBox 1.6.

Do you guys know how?

It all happens automagically with 2.1.4. In the settings for your Vista VM, go to Network and choose host interface (it should auto-select eth0 lower down). Boot up your VM and if dhcp is working OK on Vista, and you have a router in the office serving up IP addresses, it should find itself on the network and be accessible by others
