I just installed Fedora 17 on my virtual Box. My host PC is a Windows 7 machine and connects to the internet Wirelessly. Could anyone tell me what network configurations should I use on my virtual fedora box so that I could be able to ping my host Windows 7 system and at the same time use the internet. I am currently using a bridged adapter setting with promiscous mode set to "Deny"
Edit: After considering a suggestion posted I now have only one network adapter configured in my virtual Fedora 17 drive which is NAT. My configuration is as follows
[raj@FedBox ~]$ ifconfig lo: flags=73<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING> mtu 16436 inet 127.0.0.1 netmask 255.0.0.0 inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128 scopeid 0x10<host> loop txqueuelen 0 (Local Loopback) RX packets 0 bytes 0 (0.0 B) RX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 frame 0 TX packets 0 bytes 0 (0.0 B) TX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 carrier 0 collisions 0 p2p1: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 inet 10.0.2.15 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 10.0.2.255 inet6 fe80::a00:27ff:fe05:d5a2 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x20<link> ether 08:00:27:05:d5:a2 txqueuelen 1000 (Ethernet) RX packets 1890 bytes 1729820 (1.6 MiB) RX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 frame 0 TX packets 1616 bytes 197536 (192.9 KiB) TX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 carrier 0 collisions 0
My windows host is called Raj-PC so when I attempt to ping it as such I get the following error
[raj@FedBox ~]$ ping Raj-PC ping: unknown host Raj-PC
Any suggestion how to solve the problem ?
