Hi iam trying to use the new turnkey drupal6-11.0rc ISO with virtualbox in windows xp pro sp3. Its installed, bridged networking is set and its not working on my wireless or cable ethernet. I cannot get a ip address from dhcp its coming back lease failed etc eth0, and as result cannot access the login screens from my hosts browser
I have dhcp allowed on the hardware router. I don'nt see any firewall requests for the virtual machine going out.
I have went over the "netsh bridge show adaptor" which is coming back command not found, this is to allow promiscuous mode or check if its enabled with out which the virtualbox bridged networking driver would not work. Reference http://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/735 (Vbox could have fixed this now but I think sp3 has remove the ability to change promiscuous mode on network adaptors)
Nat is gettting a dhcp ip address in the vm
I have tried setting a static ip for bridged networking but it didnt work I may have done it wrong though.
I could do the bridged networking for virtualbox the old way and bridge them by right clicking in network connections (xp) or port forward nat (Reference http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch06.html#natforward) Could I still login using an ip address on the host or it all ports on the local host from then on, how would you log into the main login which doesnt use a special port other than probally port 80 I think
I am only after learning the past few days so please explain it very very simply to me. Thanks guys
