Virtual PC network problem - cannot connect to network drives and servers
Posted on 2006-10-19
Hi, running MS Virtual PC 2004 on a Win XP SP2 box, with 2003 Server EE as the guest OS. Having a problem getting access to LAN resources. I have the VM set to share the network adaptor with the physical host. From the VM, I can ping LAN devices such as servers, routers and client machines, but I cannot connect to them via the RUN box (e.g. \\192.168.x.x\c$) nor can I see anything other than the workgroup name under MS Windows Network (nothing shows up inside the workgroup).
Whenever I use RUN to try to connect to a server share, I get, "The Network location cannot be reached. For info about network troubleshooting see windows help."
I can also ping the IP of the VM from other physical machines. but cannot connect to it via RUN either. Nor does the VM show up in the workgroup.
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.
