Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Hi, I use VBox on Mandriva 2009. If i try to use a "host interface" connection using eth0 on the host system, it does not reponse to ping or anything else. I've tried it with all 4 nic drivers available in the guest. Setup:

host: ifconfig eth0
guest ifconfig eth1/2/3/4 (I've tried all 4 nics in the guest. And yes, I changed the old ethX to another subnet before assgning the 23 net to the new nic.).

Host information:

# rpm -qa|grep -i virtual

Today I figured out, that my OS has a bridged interface called pan0: # brctl show bridge name bridge id STP enabled interfaces pan0 8000.000000000000 no

The interesting thing is, that this interface works as a hostif.

So it works if you connect to that pan0 bridge but it does not if you connect to eth0?
