I do LAN gaming a lot. :)
However, the game i´ll host this time will need some dns to "forward" requests to a server inside this lan and i thought: Why not to create a
dhcp-server inside a VM so people don´t need to configure fixed addresses, and i can bundle other services on it? (Trust me. Managing 20 guys with "no" or "little" it skills to setup fixed ip address is a pain...)
So, here is my question1: Setting up a bridged interface on VirtualBox, a fixed ip address on this vm and a dhcp server on it, will i be able to deliver ip addresses to hosts inside this lan? Since it´s a bridge i don´t see problems as the guest will have a different mac address.
question2: Will my physical host be able to get an ip too?
The physical host is a Windows 7 machine, and the virtual host will probably be a Linux or FreeBSD guest.
