I'm at a loss here. I have Ubuntu 8.04 server running in VMWare Server 2.0 running in Windows Vista Home Premium.
I have it set up for virtual hosts, and I have it set up in /etc/network/interfaces for Static IP (I'm not on a static IP service, but just want to use it inside my wireless home network with Linksys wireless router):
# 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 dhcp
iface eth0 inet static
My /etc/hosts file looks something like this:
#127.0.1.1 myserver.localdomain myserver
192.168.100.135 myserver.localdomain myserver
Then some IPV6 stuffs.
My /etc/resolv.conf looks like this:
Ok, I can ping it in a DOS window in Windows:
Pinging myserver.localdomain [126.96.36.199] with 32 bytes of data:

I have my router set up to use OpenDNS so it looks like it's using that in Windows. However, if I ping it from the Ubuntu Server I get this:
PING myserver.localdomain (192.168.100.135) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from myserver.localdomain (192.168.100.135): icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=3.88 ms

64 bytes from myserver.localdomain (192.168.100.135): icmp_seq=6 ttl=64 time=0.041 ms
So it works from only within the Ubuntu Server.
If I go in Firefox in Windows to try to access the info on the web server in Ubuntu, I get a search page on OpenDNS.com instead!
I tried http://myserver.localdomain
but I just get the OpenDNS.com search page.
What do I do to fix it so I can get to the server on Ubuntu Guest OS from the Windows host OS?
