Virtual Server 2005 & Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) using Wire



1) Host - XP Laptop with internet connection using Sky Broadband Wireless
Router Netgear DG834GT
2) MS Virtual Server 2005 - I have deployed an XP MS Virtual Server 2005 to
act as a virtual machine
I am trying to share my Sky Broadband Wireless internet connection which
works on the host with the virtual server using Internet Connection Sharing
(ICS) and MS Loopback Adapter, however I get a page cannot be displayed error
on the virtual machine

Host Detail
1) Host IP Config

Note I had to change the IP Address on the Router to 192.168.0.x to
192.168.1.x because the loopback adapter needs 192.168.0.x

Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection:

2) Internet Gateway Icon on virtual Server
I can see an Internet Gateway Icon - Wireless Network Connection on <Host
Computer Namewhich is connected

3) I have created a Virtual Network Adapter pointing to the Physical
Loopback Adapter on the virtual server with the virtual DHCP server disabled

I can ping from both the host and the virtual server, however I
cannot access the internet from the virtual machine - I get a connecting to
site message in the bottom bar then a page cannot be displayed
error. Internet access on host is working

please can someone help me.

Thank you in advance

That's a really long and detailed post. Too bad it's not posted in a forum
that has anything to do with home networking.

Hi, I'm writing an application that needs to know if an Internet connection is available. Basically, I want to have something similar to what a lot of email clients have, where the app can work either in "online" or "offline" mode (it keeps a cache of downloaded info, so it can work without a connection if needed). The basic problem is this: it downloads info (RSS feeds) from a variety of sources. Any one (or more) of these could...

Hi We have a front end/back end type access app. We would like to upsize the app to sql server but can not re-write the whole app immediately. Is it feasible to just upsize the backend (data part) only to sql server using upsizing wizard without any drastic effect on the performance of the front end access app (which would link to the tables on the sql server after upsizing)?

Alright, folks, here's the deal... I'm working on migrating a classic ASP website to an ASP.NET codebase. At the heart of the site is a MySQL database. To make sure an "in-process" program doesn't screw up the live site, I run a local IIS webserver on my XP Pro (AMD XP 2500+, 512MB DDR RAM) machine, which resides behind an XP ICS gateway on my LAN. I also have a MySQL server set up locally for development purposes.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
