I'm attemtping to host my own development web server in a virtual box guest, Ubuntu Server. I would like this virtual machine to be accessible from not only my home network, but outside the LAN as well. As such, I've set up a static IP (so I can later forward ports to this static IP.) My virtual box settings have this vm only using one adapter -- in bridged mode.
Here's what my /etc/network/interfaces looks like:
iface eth0 inet static address 10.0.1.203 /*this is outside the DHCP range*/ netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 10.0.1.1 network 10.0.1.0 broadcast 10.0.1.255 dns-nameservers: 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206
Here's what the output of
ifconfig looks like: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/2241201/locker/ubuntu.png

My Host is a mac mini, running OS X 10.7.
From within the guest, if I ping google.com:
$ ping google.com # outputs 'ping: unknown host google.com' immediately
Why am I unable to access the web?
