I have a Server 2008 R2 as host OS, and XP SP3 as guest OS. (Using VBOX and NAT connection) The host ip is xxx.xxx.xx.47 and the guest ip is xxx.xxx.xx.91. I assigned xxx.xxx.xx.91 to the VM but when I go check on SHOWIP sites, I'm still getting the host IP. (xxx.xxx.xx.47)
Here's what my Internet Protocol Properties on the VM looks like :
(To fill these I typed ipconfig , copied and pasted them, changing only the IP address) Use the following IP address : IP address : xxx.xxx.xxx.91 Subnet mask : 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway : 10.0.2.2 (I've been told the default gateway is xxx.xxx.xxx.1 , but this way I cannot connect to internet at all)
Use the following DNS server addresses : Preferred DNS server : xx.xxx.xxx.2 Alternate DNS server : xx.xxx.xxx.3
What's going on ?
