NAT problems => retry with VBox 1.5.4
|Reported by:||kimus||Owned by:|
There are some 'problems' in NAT implementation.
I use this configuration to acess Apache HTTP Server from the Host to the Guest virtual machine: VBoxManage setextradata "vmname" "VBoxInternal/Devices/pcnet/0/LUN#0/Config/Apache/Protocol" TCP VBoxManage setextradata "vmname" "VBoxInternal/Devices/pcnet/0/LUN#0/Config/Apache/GuestPort" 80 VBoxManage setextradata "vmname" "VBoxInternal/Devices/pcnet/0/LUN#0/Config/Apache/HostPort" 8080
First if I put 80 instead of 8080 gives me an error. There is no application using port 80. Maybe this has to do with permissions because of the low port number.
Second, If the guest has a fixed IP then the NAT won't work because is expecting that the interface is configured to use DHCP !
Third, I can't use the VirtualHost's Apache configuration. example: accessing the url http://somehost:8080/ in the Host machine don't go to the correct page. If I do http://somehost/ in the Guest works fine!
I don't want to use bridging!!
