Perfect, this did wonder for me. Many thanks Jim. I owe you a truck of beer.

I just love this forum.

You probably should just use DHCP, at least initially, for setup of host-only networking.

If Vista does not provide a route to the vmnet1 adapter, you would do it from a command line window using the ROUTE ADD command. Examples of syntax are automatically shown for you when you when you type in just the word ROUTE.

Hello all,

I am restarting this particular thread. Here's my situation in summary. I have
a Windows 7 host OS,
VirtualBox VM and
a Linux OpenSuse Guest OS.
Used Bridged-adapter as the "attached to" and
wired connector.

I have also apache web server installed on the OpenSuse guest OS.

With all this I am able to do the following
1) test that the apache web server responds in the opensuse env with Mozilla Firefox
2) ping from windows cmd terminal to the opensuse VM machine. IP address is 192.168..0.191 for the linux opensuse.
3) However, I cannot get the apache web server to respond via a browser in the Windows environment. I have disabled the firewall in Windows.

How can I get the #3 step working?

After searching bit more on the net fixed the issue. The firewall on opensuse had to be turned off for now. I did that, went back to Windows and entered the http://192.168.0.191 address. Received the message back from apache2 server ("It works").
