Networking not working under Linux 2.1

Description

Hello,

I'm running VB under Jeos (ubuntu) 8.04 and have VB 2.1.0 installed. Guest OS is also Jeos.

I'm trying to get bridging working so that I can use a public ip space ip in VB. The VB manual tells me that with VB 2.1.0 that all i need to do i s select 'Host Interface' and simply select one of my active net devices, currently 'eth0', for bridging.

However, when i boot into linux in VB, all i get is the 'lo' device. Attempts to bring up eth0 fail via 'sudo ifup eth0' w/ error message "No such device".

Thoughts?

Thanks! JJ

I've removed your previous comments and attached your log files. There is an attach button above!

Sounds good. What are your thoughts on the log files?

comment:6 Changed 10 years ago by frank

I assume that your guest is detecting a different MAC address. Please could you attach the output of dmesg from your guest when you attached the hostif to eth0? And the output of dmesg again when you selected NAT?
