Thumbs up How do I get VPN in VirtualBox through Fedora11 to work ???

I've got a problem with getting my VPN connection from my virtual machine working (a XP64 running in VirtualBox). I really need to get it working so that I can nuke my windows partition, and because I would like run linux programs while using my XP VPN connection (as I need to run some XP programs at school). I've found this manual on how to do it on Ubuntu, but I am doubt about how to translate it to Fedora (and I really prefer Fedora).

http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtop...feee8c35dab3a0

Please help.

Thanks ...

P.S. I need to get it working through my wireless connection ...

It should just work. However, I'd recommend using host bridged networking, rather than NAT.

You're lucky actually. Back in the old days, about a year or two ago, bridged networking in VirtualBox wasn't simple. Now, as you know, it's just a click.

As for not thinking about it, been there, done that--It was also VPN in my case.

Yeah, I feel really lucky that I now can delete my windows partitions for good ... I've got everything else to work with Linux and VirtualBox, but VPN was holding me back. But now I can do some really happy formatting ...

Thanks again ...

What sort of VPN are they running? If it's Cisco, you can use VPNC. (If it's Nortel, I beileve there is also a client available, but it's around $100 USD.

Actually they use Cisco, but I only need the VPN for (my now virtual) windows, because some windows programs needs to check that the are genuine on a license server. Even if I could connect with VPNC, there will be no use for it ...

Thanks ...
