Directly accessing network adapter in virtual box?


I am unable to configure vpn on linux host OS because of windows vpn server on the other end.


Is it possible to access eth0 directly on guest operating system in virutalbox on a Centos host? so that I could connect directly from MS guest to MS vpn server using specified dialer software provided by service provider. I have problems configuring pptp on Centos and am really frustrated.

Thanks in advance

It works fine on Linux, because Linux provides very powerful bridging software (bridge-utils).
That's what I found from a quick Google search.

gives instructions for a Debian host to do exactly what you are looking for. Not sure if you could bend it for Centos though...
