Is there any way of making dropbox's lan sync working on a virtual machine ?
Another "dropboxed" machine in the LAN is a standalone PC running *buntu 12.04 amd64, not a VM.
host OS: Windows 7 64 bit
guest (VM): *buntu 12.10 amd64
target LAN is: inet addr:192.168.0.x Mask:255.255.255.0
while out of the box virtualbox's settings yield: inet addr:10.0.2.15 Mask:255.255.255.0 (NAT mode)
I've already tried to tamper with those settings and the most promising ones that I've managed to get are:
networking mode: "Bridged adapter", same LAN prefix, same MAC address as the host (with different MAC it wasn't possible to circumvent local network access denial), but neither Dropbox nor the Internet is working
Installing Dropbox on the host and mounting the folder to guest is last resort
