I'm having a bizarre (to me) problem probably related to the way my company's network is set up.
I set up my virtual machine the way they suggest here
And I am able to ping to the company site, but not to google.com or 126.96.36.199. This is the same behaviour that I see when use cmd from Windows.
What's odd is that even on port 80 traffic, I am not able to communicate with the outside world. I have tried
wgeting google.com, and using
apt-get update, but both of these do not connect. Neither of these work when my VM is set up to use NAT either.
Any idea how I can set up my machine to receive updates and packages? I'm open to downloading the packages, but so far, some of the utilities I've seen have gone out of development and other solutions such as mirroring the 2TB repository are out of the question.
Edit: There are other solutions, such as taking the vm file home with me, or using ssh to connect to a home server via port 80, if that's even going to work, which I'm not convinced it will. Any help would be appreciated.
