|I've got this setup; a regular virtual Linux client in a Windows 7 host|
I had Bridged network setup, but I don't like the fact the IP of the client (Linux) follows the one of the host. Meaning; it changes a lot.
So, I need a fixed IP. Got that, using Host-Only setup ... but :
I also want to run X-tools on that Linux client. I don't want to setup a GUI on Linux, so I wanted to use my Windows host as the X DISPLAY.
But, the Linux client cannot connect to the host, on network level. If I set that IP in Linux, he cant forward X tools to my Windows. I cannot ping from Linux to Windows.
I guess that is normal, in the chosen setup. When I had bridged network, doing that was no problem.
So, question is; how do I get both:
- fixed IP in Linux
- able to use X-tools on Windows (which should mean to ping from Linux to Windows)
