VirtualBox VM cannot 'see' bridged host
A bit of a stange one this that will probably have a really easy solution, but I can't see the wood fro the trees I suspect.
I'm doign some testing of systems management/monitoring software and have setup an old XP VM to be the host for these. As it would need to be on our small office LAN to demoinstate features I have set the VM NIC to bridged mode i.e. it will recive a DHCP address from the server and be on the same range as all of the other office hardware.
This went fine until I discovered tha the only thing it cannot see is the host machine (my desktop PC). I can ping all of the other office harware such as the SAN, router, switch etc, but not the host machine. And neither can I ping the VM from the host. It is most perplexing, so any help would be much appreciated.
Oh, and the office router (a Netgear WNR2000) handles DHCP, DNS etc.
