This morning I started working on a new experience with VirtualBox virtual machines to implement a project involving two Windows XP boxes. After setting those machines up, I went out to configure bridge mode, configuring static IPs on both sides. To my surprise, I cannot reach the machines: when I try to ping each other, it isn't pinging.

  • Gateway address: 192.168.1.1
  • Machine A: 192.168.1.150
  • Machine A: 192.168.1.151

Of course, I am using the same wireless board on both machines.

Any hints about it? Does anyone here have this scenario working well?

Check the network card settings in Virtualbox - you may want the "bridged" mode on both machines, and set it to bridge on the same card: virtualbox.org/manual/ch06.html –  Piskvor Jul 17 '12 at 11:56

Are you sure Bridged Mode is the right mode for you? This mode is designed for direct access to your physical network adapter of the host, not for bridging two VMs: virtualbox.org/manual/ch06.html#idp11639216 –  Robert Jul 17 '12 at 13:07
