Networking for guest VMs that are servers

Postby markc » 16. Jan 2011, 21:38

Hi,

I need some help/advice...

I'm setting up a self-contained SunRay demo server and planned on the following..

Solaris 10 x86 host
VirtualBox v4.0
Win XP Guest VM
Win 7 Guest VM

My plan was to:
1) Install the SunRay software under the Solaris 10 physical host (I've done this and it works fine).
2) Install VirtualBox 4.0 and then create the XP and Win7 VM's (again I've done this and the VMs boot OK).
3) The last step was to point the SunRay sessions to the VirtualBox VMs, but this I can't get working.

By default the VB setup uses NAT to enable the internal VMs to access the outside network, but this hides the VMs from the outside.
Please can someone point me in the right direction?
Basically, I would like the VB VMs to be on the external network, using IP addresses on the external subnet.

eg.
Solaris 10 host = 192.168.1.10
WinXP VM = 192.168.1.11
Win7 VM = 192.168.1.12

etc...

Thanks for your help

Thanks for the reply. I did try using bridged networking, but that didn't seem to work. I was thinking of doing something similar to this - http://open-source-experiments.blogspot ... -only.html and will update you how I get on.

OK - I've configured as follows:

Solaris 10 host = 192.168.254.85
XP VBox VM = 192.168.254.161
Win7 VBox VM = 192.168.254.160

On the network settings for each VM I have selected "Bridged Adapter". I also disabled the firewalls on the VMs.

I can now ping between the outside world and hosts/VMs, but when I try to run "uttsc 192.168.254.161" (or .160) I get a message "Failed to connect to host 192.168.254.161"

Any ideas

Thanks
