I am trying to set up Network Address Translation on Virtualbox. The host is Debian wheezy and so is the virtualized server.
On virtual server side, no configuration has been made;
On physical server, internet access is through eth0:
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE
On virtualbox GUI, I have configured my virtual server network to: Adapter 1, Enable Network Adapter, Attached to NAT, cable connected.
on virtual server, no way to ping the gateway (eth0:1), and reciprocally.
This works by setting Bridged Adapter instead of NAT, but is it the normal way to set up NAT in Virtualbox?
Thanks for your help
