Ticket #2886 (closed defect: duplicate)
HOST networking failure on Debian 4 amd64 host.
|Reported by:||quack||Owned by:|
HOSTIF networking appears not to be working using vbox 2.1.0 on Debian 4 amd64 using internet routeable IPs. I'm using networking which has a netmask of 255.255.240.0 and the gateway is located at x.y.z.1 while my IPs are all x.y.a.b - x.y.c.d (far away from each other, but whithin the netmask). The guest OS is assigned it's IP statically, so is the host. The IPs are tested to work in the host. OpenBSD and Linux guests both have this problem - so that rules out a specific OS problem.
