I've setup a Ubuntu server virtual machine running on my Windows Vista host pc. The situation is:
I can ping the virtual pc from the host
I can ping the adapter IP from the virtual machine
I cannot ping the web from the virtual machine or ping my host IP
I hope the following details help clarify the situation and I think its simply to do with the gateways, but can't see exactly what.
Any help would be great.
Host: Windows Vista
Wireless Lan Adapter
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet static
Gateway 192.168.0.1 [I believe this is wrong I just don't know what it should be!]
Network adapter (VMplayer settings): NAT
Well I fixed it. I downloaded a GUI vmware and set that up and all worked - so I reaslied it was a setting in my Ubuntu server.
I changed 2 key things - firstly the gateway is now 192.168.0.2 and I'm broadcasting on 192.168.0.254 and that seemed to fix it.
I have changed the order the entries appear in but I'm not sure if that plays a part?
Updates are running and all appears ok!
