Default HOWTO Implement VirtualBox based VM, networking issue

Howdy all,

Im running VBoxHeadless on CentOS 5.5,
VBox host ETH0 has the IP of - 19X.20X.52.9X
And sub-interface ETH0:0 of -

Guest VM (win2k3 if matters) is configured as BRIDGED nic and uses -
GW -

Now, I can ping & 19X.20X.52.9X from guest vm but no success pinging Google's public DNS ( for example.

The answer is pretty simple,
All needed to be done to make my setup work is to set the Guest NIC to NAT.
VirtualBox has its own Router-alike function, Guest VM receives IP from VBox DHCP and network is working.

Now I wanted to port-forward 3389 to use Guest's RDP protocol,
This is how it's done -

All works,
/me happy!
