Here is my setup:
- A windows 7 laptop running as a host running VirtualBox
- Inside Virtualbox, I have a debian VM.
- The eth0 of the VM is created as a bridged device from the physical ethernet port on the laptop
- On Windows, I run wireshark and sniff the ethernet device.
When I try to a host in the wild internet from the VM, it works but I can't capture any packets. But if I ping the laptop's IP address, wireshark sees the icmp traffic without problem.
Why is that?
