I recently installed Fedora 10 on VirtualBox (host OS is XP) for evaluation purpose and encounter connectivity issue.
In virtualized Fedora, eth0 is running on DHCP. I configure Firefox to use proxy (because I am in office), and it has no issue browsing.
But, in console (I use gnome-terminal), I am unable to ping google.com or yahoo.com.
Example, ping www.yahoo.com
[root@localhost etc]# ping yahoo.com
PING yahoo.com (126.96.36.199) 56(84) bytes of data.
--- yahoo.com ping statistics ---
3 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 2848ms
The ping just halts there until Control+C issue to break.
And if we do a nslookup on www.google.com
[root@localhost etc]# nslookup www.google.com
www.google.com canonical name = www.l.google.com.
In this config I manage to ping the proxy and it responses. So I presume the network config should be fine. I personally reckon the DNS setting is not properly set (limited understanding). Anyone please help?
