I installed Ubuntu linux distribution 10.04 on VirtualBox 4.2.12. The host os is windows 7. Now I want to do connect use wget. But the result is like:
wget www.google.com Resolving www.google.com... 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168, ... Connecting to www.google.com|22.214.171.124|:80... failed: Connection timed out. ... Connecting to www.google.com|126.96.36.199|:80... failed: Connection timed out. Connecting to www.google.com|2404:6800:4005:801::1011|:80... failed: Network is unreachable.
But I can browse 188.8.131.52 using Firefox on linux. I just cannot figure that why I cannot use wget to connect to the Internet but can connect with Firefox? It is very strange. I want to know the reason why this thing happen.
BTW my host uses fixed IP to access to the Internet. I only have one IP to access to the Internet, so I'm using the NAT mode in VirtualBox.
