On my company Windows 10 host I can successfully ping a.b.c.

I have vagrant guest on Virtualbox and when I call ping a.b.c I got error Unknown host

I found that I should use natdnshostresolver1 on. But it didn't help me. I use network with NAT mode and I would like to keep it unchanged.

When I call ping google.com I got correct answer, so I have problem only with company DNS

  • is a.b.c an intranet domain and picked up by your win10 via your corporate DNS? if so you may try use your Windows DNS with vagrant – hkdtam May 13 '16 at 6:24
  • @hkdtam Good idea. How to do it? – michaldo May 13 '16 at 6:31

This may be a good starting point?

  • While this may answer the question, it would be a better answer if you could provide some explanation why it does so. – DavidPostill May 13 '16 at 9:57

Finally I found that however on guest ping a.b.c does not work but ping a works fine.

That is enough for my needs.
