I have Windows Server 2008 R2 running on a VirtualBox vm inside Mac OS X. I put it in "bridged mode" in hopes that it would receive an IP address through DHCP and become visible as an "attached device" to which I could forward HTTP traffic on port 80.
Indeed it has received a valid 192.168.x.x address and has the router's IP as a default gateway. But it does not show up at an "attached device" as do all other devices getting IP addresses from the router.
Am I doing something wrong here, or is this to be expected? Am I on the right track?
The router is a NetGear N150 Wireless Router, and I'm accessing it through the browser-based NetGear Smart Wizard.
