I have a redmine server set up on an Ubuntu 12 VM in virtualBox. My host machine in windows 7 64bit. I can access the redmine server from the host by putting the guest's ip address in my web browser. The problem I am having is that I need to be able to connect my host to VPN (using Cisco VPN client 5.0.07). Once i'm connected to vpn, I can no longer access my guest's ip address from the host. I've tried various network adapter configurations and none of them seem to work. I've gotten my guest to be able to connect to the vpn network, but that's not what I need. I've these different host/guest network setups:

  • NAT
  • Bridged
  • Host-only
  • NAT+Bridged
  • NAT+Internal network
  • NAT+Host-Only

tl;dr I need to access a guest's IP address while the host is connected to a vpn network

EDIT: It looks like the only methods that let me connect from the host to the guest are bridged or host-only networking ip addresses

You've probably got a routing issue. What IP subnets are in use for every device. Provide outputs of ifconfig and route – Ben Lessani - Sonassi Sep 15 '12 at 21:14
