Hi, I'm following the tutorial : The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 13.04 Before I go live on the web I want to get it running in a virtual box. I have a VM and options for NAT or Bridged networking. I'm running the VM on my laptop which is connected to my router using DHCP over wifi. I'm not sure which IP address I should assign to the static interface in the server. I can see there are 2 interfaces for VM in the host. VMNet1 / VMNet8 - I've tried the IP's for both of these but I still can't get online. Any help would be much appreciated. I've set my VM host to use NAT. I disabled DHCP in VM host and noted the IP address it was previously giving : 192.168.242.0 I also noted the Gateway number being 192.168.242.2. subnet mask 255.255.255.0 So I set the interfaces file in the server to : iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.242.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 192.168.0.0 (not sure what this is !) broadcast 192.168.242.255 (this was found in VM DHCP settings) gateway 192.168.242.2 dns-nameservers 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52 I can ping the server from the host on IP 192.168.242.0 but I can't get online from the server nor ping the host.
