    unable to ping or access websites on ubuntu 18.4LTS on Virtual box

    Hey guys

    total newbie here, got fed up with windows world and gone over to the dark side

    yesterday i installed ubuntu 18.4 LTS on a Virtual box with bridge connections.

    it seems i can ping ip addresses internally, ping with ip addresses externally but when i try and resolve hostnames or websites, i cant

    Code:
    rahim@websrv01ubuntu:~$ ping -c3 192.168.0.1PING 192.168.0.1 (192.168.0.1) 56(84) bytes of data.

    I know 18.4 uses netplan and this is how it the 50-cloud-init.yaml file is configured for static ip address.
    Code:
    network:
       version: 2
       renderer: networkd
       ethernets:
             enp0s3:
               dhcp4: no
               addresses: [192.168.0.200/24]
               gateway4: 192.168.0.1
               nameservers:
                 addresses: [8.8.8.8,8.8.4.4]
    any help will be appreciated as i begin my journey into linux world

    Thanks
    Rahim

    Hello!

    yaml is very strict about 2 space indentations. That is part of its specification.

    Try cleaning up your indentation as a start.

    Cheers!

    thanks and noted

    still no joy...im assuming its not a dns issue as it is resolving address, just not pinging them

    what else am i missing
    thanks
