[Solved] Virtualbox 2.1 on Etch cant connect Internet?

Postby nr5 » 2008-12-20 15:53

Hello!

I just installed Virtualbox 2.1 on Debian 4.0 Etch. All went well until i start windows server 2003 in the VM and log in, there is no connection to the Internet... Windows is using a static IP address and everything is up like it should, I even try "Repairing" the connection inside Windows and it said "all is well, contact network admin if u have issues" so Im guessing the problem is not within windows (was working with older version of virtualbox).

My Network settings in Virtualbox are Host Interface using eth0. I even tried changing to NAT but it dosnt help... Im not sure what to do ?

Anyone have a suggestion??

post the output of:
In the host (debian)
#ifconfig
#route

On the windows box, from a command prompt:
ipconfig /all
(I'm pretty sure that's the command, going from memory).

I also noticed a funny thing, when i log on to the router i can see the attached devices, 192.168.0.101 (debian host) AND Windows server thats running in Virtualbox 192.168.0.104...

Im unable to ping 192.168.0.104 or connect to it in any way...

I also noticed that my debian hos dropped its connection to the local network compleatly once or twice... but i could still see 192.168.0.104 (virtualbox windows) as an attached device in my router :S

If its any clue, i also noticed this message:

But that only came up when I enable the new "Enable 3D Acceleration" so im guessing it has nothing to do with it.

You said you have host bridged networking enabled as the networking option, correct? From the windows box can you ping:
192.168.0.101
192.168.0.1

and, from the host, can you ping
192.168.0.104

assuming you can ping, and if the router has a web interface, can you get to the web interface from the windows box?

Hosted Interface eth0 yes (if thats the same thing)

From the windows box can you ping:
192.168.0.101
192.168.0.1


No I get "Request timed out"

and, from the host, can you ping
192.168.0.104


Same "Destination Host Unreachable"

I also found this in log/messages

Think the changing of the promiscuous mode is whats causing debianhost to loose the connection... but thats not my main issue here :)

I have to go and won't be back until at least late tomorrow, but I'd suggest you look at any firewall settings you may have on the windows box (that includes the default windows firewall if that's all you have). I'm almost certain the problem is inside Windows (almost, but not 100%).

The promiscuous mode stuff is fine, VB needs to set it that way in order to do it's thing. The entered should tie in with when you brought up a VB image, and the left with when you bring it down.

It shouldn't have any impact on your connection - unless your card is flaky somehow, then (a big) maybe.

From what I've seen so far VB is making the connection just fine, you can see the box, it's just isolated for some reason.

IMHO it is the best to set up bridged interface.

Look at this site:
http://wiki.debian.org/VirtualBox


there is a section there "Setting up bridged networking for VirtualBox", i followed it and it works very well for me.
Thanks in advance

I really hate saying this. But I am getting the same problem Including the kernel Messages.

I think it is more kernel then a configuration issue. As the following happened when I upgraded.

1. After I installed the new version things seemed to work. Until I did a reboot and when I tried to run Virtrtualbox headless I would get a full kernel panic.

2. After I removed the old TAP settings the kernel panics stopped but now I cannot get bridged networking to work.

(2.1 is supposed to make it easier but it doesn't work)

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling clearing all permissions and config files but still the same issue of it not booting up.

The Wiki doesn't seem to cover 2.1

Same issue, only affecting networking.

Postby CellKill » 2008-12-24 10:22

Installed from .deb package available on VirtualBox site and .run package.
Used AMD64 versions.

There is no visible error in VirtualBox, there is just no networking available between the guest and host systems.

VBoxManage -modifyvm <vmname>
-nic1 hostif
-hostifdev1 eth0
Both using ips in the same subnet.

The same error appears in a console message when starting the guest VM running Windows Server 2K8 Standard.

Ok i solved it :)

The message "kernel: Oops" that appears when starting the virtual machine is a kernel bug so I figured i change my kernel.

I was first running kernel 2.6.18 and then upgraded to 2.6.25 but that gave me similar errors so i downgraded to 2.6.24 installing the kernel and sources and now it works great! :) No more kernel Oops and internet works perfectly.

Latest kernel in sid/testing is 2.6.26-12 fwiw
