Im trying to setup a virtual lab with VirtualBox, using 2 Ubuntu guests and 1 XP.
Each of the guests are attached to the VirtualBox internal network.
I have one of the Ubuntu Guests configured with 2 network adapters,
one adapter is connected to the internal network and the other is connected to the NAT.
I want all network traffic to pass through this guest.
I have each guest configured with a static IP, the gateway IP is set to the NATed guests internal network adapter IP.
I can get internet on each guest, and can see the traffic (using wireshark) going through my NATed Ubuntu system.
The problem I am having is I cant seem to ping or connect to any of the services running on the internal network. I just get the message 'connect: Network is unreachable',
Im guessing this has something to do with my routing table, which is empty, but not sure how to fix it.
Ive tried adding a route using: "route add 169.254.236.0/24 gw 169.254.236.100"
but i just get an error message: "netmask 000000ff doesn't make sense with host route"
My static IPs are set as follows:
iface eth0 inet static
