Feel free to move to Software if applicable, but I'm pretty sure I'm missing something stupid simple here.
I installed Windows on VirtualBox (Ubuntu 8.04 host), and I'm trying to add a bridge so windows can use internet.
Here is my working /etc/network/interfaces file:
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
# The Primary network interface
iface eth0 inet static
I try adding
iface br0 inet dhcp
I've added it above and below the loopback stanza.
I then type
and I the readout says it waits for br0 to get ready, maxwait is 32
I count to 32, and it waits that long to continue, so I assume it doesn't work at that point.
Afterwards apache, proftpd, ping, and firefox dont have internet connection (so no connection period).
What am I doing wrong? Is it because eth0 is static and br0 isn't setup that way?
