Ticket #377 (closed defect: invalid)
NAT net: DNS not working after net failure
|Reported by:||xerces8||Owned by:|
vbox 1.3.8 on winXPproSP2
I started a VM (with NAT networking, OS is Ubuntu 7.04), while the host had no network connection. Then I connected the host and networking on the host worked. But in the guest it did not. It turns out, that outgoing TCP connections work, but only to numerical IP addresses. DNS resolving on the other hand not. Tried a manual "nslookup some.server.com" and it failed. The TCP/IP parameters in the VM were correct :
- address 10.0.2.15
- gateway 10.0.2.2
- DNS server : 10.0.2.3
I did not try an external DNS server.
After restarting vbox it still did not work. Only after restarting the host it started to work.
