Virtual Box, Linux , networking

Msg#: 4389043 posted 12:53 pm on Nov 20, 2011 (gmt 0)

I want to set up LAMP on Virtual Box on Windows7. I am wondering if it is possible to (regular cable modem from ISP connected to desktop through ethernet port, dynamic IP)

1) Connect from Windows7 to Linux (Apache, MySQL-server, etc...)
2) Connect from Linux to the Internet
3) Connect from Windows 7 to the Internet

...all at the same time?

Thank you.

any internet request for a domain/hostname will have to resolve to an IP address first.
that dynamic IP is going to make it difficult if not impossible to make a functional DNS config.

this is separate from the issue you are probably more interested in, which is the web functionality of multiple processes/OS's on one W7 box.

Yes, it's possible. I'm using VMware but I think VirtualBox should be similar. You can either choose bridged or NAT network connection. Both will work & you can have a development LAMP server within your Windows 7 host, all connected to the internet.

I am trying to stick to the option of Host-only Adapter + NAT (as suggested on VB support forum), but I cant get it to work at all. I got some pictures here: [joliett89.comli.com...]
