i'd like to set my guest's public-ip (windows xp) undependent from the host's ip as a different one. Is it possible? If so, how do i do it?
Please note that, it's about the public id, not the local ones..
Thank you very much..

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
If you set the virtual network card connection to be "Bridged" rather than "NAT" then you can set the IP address in the virtual machine to the same format as the host machine.
Examples (assuming you do the above):
End result is that any machine on the network would be able to connect to the virtual machine via its own IP address and you wouldn't need to configure anything to map across to it
Hope this helps
although this isn't a current post, are you trying to change what address the website/person sees you as? if so, just use a web proxy or download your own, other than that you can use a private secure network. Though these aren't fool proof, you can use them to, for example let a US website think you're from Russia or visa versa.
This all comes from programs you install on the virtual machine after using the above method to give the VM its own ip address. (although you could do it for host only and not bridge adapter if you felt like it)
