Connecting to the Internet from Indiana as the guest via NAT

by Amit

After installing Indiana on Ubuntu 7.04 using Virtual Box I wanted to access the Internet from Indiana. I use a PPP connection to connect to the Internet on my host machine. All I had to do is:

  1. Enable NAT in the Virtual Box settings for the Indiana virtual machine
  2. Enable DHCP for the virtual network interface on Indiana and enable it so as to activate at boot time

..and it works!
