Windows 7 host and Windows XP guest - no internet connection

Postby pykko » 19. Apr 2009, 17:50

I have the host: Windows 7 (7077) and Windows XP as guest installed in VirtualBox.
I can't get my internet work in VM.

Is it related to the new ipv4.2 si ipv6.1 introduced in Windows 7 ?

What can I do?

What version of VBox are you using?
What did you select for the guest network, NAT, Host-only, Bridged, Hosted interface?

I'm assuming you use the default NAT setting for the VM. That doesn't work properly in 2.2.0. Check the Bugtracker for the ticket and work around.

I use VirtualBox 2.2.0 and I choose NAT. Anyway, no other option works.

I've searched for that ticket but I had no succes. Can you please post here the workaround ? :oops:

Ever heard of Google? It's a very good website that lets you search on the web if you can't find it yourself. If you used it, you would have found the problem on this site: http://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/3655
