I would like to connect Ubuntu VM running in VirtualBox to VPN. I use
vpnc to connect to VPN. I only managed to connect to VPN if I set VM NIC to bridged mode. However bridged mode only works if I connect host via cable to internet. What I need, is to have host connected via WiFi. When host is connected to WiFi, and guest NIC is in bridged mode, guest VM have no connection to internet (no VPN involved). I read that it may be not possible at all to use bridged mode with WiFi.
Because of this I set VM NIC to NAT. But in this case, VPN connection is not working properly.
vpnc is starting properly (saying
VPNC started in background), but I cannot access hosts that are in VPN network (e.g. ping reports 100% packet loss).
So I have two questions. Answering either of them would resolve the problem:
- Is it possible/How to use bridged mode with WiFi?
- Is it possible/How to connect to VPN behind NAT?
Some more info:
- Host is Windows 7 Enterprise
- Guest is Lubuntu 16.10
- VirtualBox version is 5.1.28, guest addons are installed.
