I am running Ubuntu 9.04 Server w/Gnome. I have the free version (2.1.4) of Sun VirtualBox, which runs a Windows7RC VM. I have a VPN connection (PPTP) set up in my Ubuntu network settings that works fine. However, I can't get the VM to neither use the VPN tunnel through Ubuntu, nor connect using it's own VPN. I know this is an Ubuntu forum so I understand no one wants to do any Windows problem solving (isn't that one of the reasons we use linux in the first place?) but I would appreciate any help you can give.
