comment Development DB server with dedicated hardware
Thanks for reviving this ancient post, but I'm afraid I don't even have this hardware any more :) Good tip on the SSDs though.

comment Debian package bigger than the source files
You should really check what is taking up that much space in your .deb. Statically linking libraries can make the compiled files bigger, but I doubt that it would grow that much…

comment VirtualBox Bridged Network to Debian Fails to connect
@user907560 that's very odd indeed. Since PING works from from the Guest OS to other computers on the network, that would mean that two-way communication is working, so something is blocking ICMP (and probably others too) from reaching the Guest OS from other parts of the local network. Did you check the firewall settings in your Host OS?

comment VirtualBox Bridged Network to Debian Fails to connect
@user907560 if you enable ICS, that may help you get Internet connection in the guest OS, but since your host is Windows, it will require you to set the host-only network adapter's IP to 192.168.0.1 (at least that was the case with Windows XP). If you want access from other machines on your network, you should probably go with bridged interfaces instead.

comment VirtualBox Bridged Network to Debian Fails to connect
@user907560 that's odd, do you see the network bridge in Network Adapter Settings in your Windows 7 host? Check its properties to see if maybe ICMP packets are being blocked somehow. (I assume you're using the bridge mode, not NAT, right?)

comment tcpdump shows traffic until I use a filter
Yes, your filter is valid. Are you absolutely sure there is traffic on that port? Have you tried running two instances at the same time, one with the grep, the other one with the filter?

comment VirtualBox Bridged Network to Debian Fails to connect
Bridging will use the same network, it does not create a different network. So if your router/modem is 192.168.1.1, your host OS is, say, 192.168.1.2, you can set the guest OS to 192.168.1.3 and then try network access.
