vbox 4.0 NAT not working ?

Postby ssgam » 24. Jan 2011, 12:45

Hi All,

i'm seeing something really strange ...

i've installed vbox 4.0 as root (opensolaris host), and
started vb as a non-root user.

i was able to install windows 2008 into the guest.

however, the network is not working ...

i've chosen to use NAT.

after the w2008 boots up, windows complained
that there is no network.

ipconfig shows the same ip address used by the system's
igb0. the default gateway was also correctly displayed.

is there something else needed for a x86 server (with 4
NIC) ?

thanks,
sam

HI All,

found the problem ..

had to changed the default adapter type from:

Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop (82540EM) to
Intel PRO/1000 MT Server (8254EM).

Thanks,
