[vbox-dev] NAT/slirp issue?

I have a windows xp host PC that has two network interfaces, one is for internal local network without internet connection, the other can connect to internet. These two interfaces have 2 different IPs.
Somehow, vbox vm (configured as NAT) running on this pc can NOT browse any internet websites, but it works for the local network. I checked the settings inside vm, the adapter and ip are correct, and there is traffice between this vm and the host.
It seems somehow the vm is hooked to the internal network on host, rather than the one that can browse internet. I don't know how slirp works internally, but I assume it uses windows socket api to send/receive packets. Any chance that traffic is bounded to a specific interface?
