VBox VPN (PPTP) for WinXPSP2 Guest

Reported by: thokern Owned by:
Priority: major Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 1.3.8 Keywords: incomming connections to guest
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: other


I´m not able to make incomming connections like a simple VPN (PPTP) to a fresh installed WinWPSP2 Guest. Host OS is WinXPSP2 as well.

Scenario: Host has one W-LAN NIC connectet with 54 MBit/s to a ADSL Router. On Windows Host VPN works as expected. As soon as I try to Bridge the W-LAN NIC with the virtual NIC called "VBox NIC1" the W-LAN connection drops. Both the Host and the Guest are configured to use DCHP.

Because there is a Firewall on the Router, on the Host and on the Guest there is no security risk at all. I want to achieve that all Incomming connections are passed to the Guest.Switching off the Firewalls doesn´t solve the Problem.

Any help welcome!!

Most wireless cards do not work with bridging, so this may be your problem. You should probably take this to the forums though, because it is almost certainly not a problem with VirtualBox.
