I am trying to set up a copy of linux ubuntu on my winxp box using sun virtualbox. I have everything installed for the copy of linux.
This is being installed behind a proxy server that I cannot get access to.
The winxp box does have access to the internet through the proxy server.
I am having a problem getting the internet on the linux install to work.
I have set up internet connection sharing on my winxp box
this has 2 addresses for each network adapter
on is the physical adapter and the other is the virtaul host only network created by sun virtual box.
after setting up internet connection sharing on winxp
setting home network connection to VirtualBox Host-Only Network
ip adress on the VirtualBox Host-Only Network is 192.168.0.1
I maunually setup the virtual linux box with the ipaddress 192.168.0.2
and set the gateway to 192.168.0.1
the dns server is set to 192.168.0.1
I can ping google with no problems but when I try to browse to google I get blocked by the proxy server.
Can I not set this up so that all the traffic appears to be coming from the winxp installation which does have access through the proxy server?

You'd also have to setup the web browser you are using in your Linux VM to go through the proxy. In firefox this is done via "Edit", "Preferences", "Advanced", "Network", "Settings".

yeah I think i was getting confused i was settin the proxy server as the winxp box (thinking that this would forward the request to the actual proxy server doh...) after setting the proxy server in the proxy settings in ubuntu it worked and the winxp NAT masks my web request and the proxy lets it through. finally. thanks for your help
