I have Windows 8.1 as the host with Mint 16 as VM using Bridged. I can connect to the proxy links, but it looks to time-out when attempting to connect to other URL paths. I have tried NAT and Custom connection, but then I lose ability to connect to anything.
Am I missing a setting or could something in the host be blocking access, like a firewall or Avast security? I have done a lot of searches on this, coming up empty.
