    Internet access ethernet


    I am using the schools internet and I have installed a ubuntu virtual machine onto a mac. Unfortunately the internet isn't working, even when I typed in the port and IP address. Anyone know how to fix this?

    What are you using for virtualization software? Typically there are 2 types of ethernet connections in virtual machines, bridging and NAT. NAT should just work, bridging puts the VM on the same network as the host, so if there is no DHCP server on this network then you need to set a static IP.

    Jagoul, try not to hijack other users threads. And double posting is actually against Forum Rules.

    Just keep an eye on your original posting. Looks like Mike is gonna get you taken care of!
