I wanted to install ubuntu server on virtualbox. So I have it, with apache, mysql, openssh etc. On my Win7 I created a bridge between my wifi connection, and virtualbox host only network, and I choose it in ubuntu network settings. In /etc/network/interfaces I set eth0 as static:

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

My laptop ip is 192.168.102, router ip is

How I can fix it?

Two hints for asking for answers on StackOverflow: 1. Phrase your question as a question (with a question mark at the end) (you've done that, congratulations). 2. Try to avoid it, this, this problem, but be - if it is possible in short - as specific as possible. – Martin Thoma Aug 25 '12 at 9:04
Thanks for hints, in future i will try to avoid that, what you wrote. – pierzu Aug 25 '12 at 10:22
That not solve my problem. I want to access server outside my lan. As i wrote, i created bridge connection. – pierzu Aug 25 '12 at 11:12
