Re: Single-link MLPPP on Windows with Virtualbox (instructions)

that should be (with no space)
http: //fixppp.org/downloads/ZeroShell-MLPPP-1.0beta11-mp1alpha3.tar.bz2
It's the message board software screwing the url.

Thank you DSL_Ricer. I feel a little less stupid after all.

Aside from my moments of extreme haziness, everything ran smoothly & it seems to be happily set up.

My final foolish question is what now? I'm still connected through Windows which never dropped the connection through the set-up. Is this working in tandem with the Windows log-in now? Shouldn't I be logging in now (and from now on,) with a ZeroShell/MLPPP login of some sort? I'm guessing that when I reboot the computer I don't need to restart VirtualBox - but my guessing isn't worth a whole lot.

Thank you both for the terrific work on this & Tomato, and the tireless & gracious support throughout. It's that total TekSavvy vibe!

You'll need to start up VirtualBox every time you reboot, although there may be some way to make a startup item to start it, I've no idea. You'll also have to keep it running and minimized, although there are various tools that can minimize it to your system tray.

You'll want to delete your Windows PPPoE connection entirely; having one that isn't in use causes really annoying things, whenever a connection fails it tries to open the PPPoE connection.

If your ethernet card is set up to connect to the net through ZeroShell (by setting the gateway and DNS to 192.168.0.75), then everything should work.

And of course my guess was wrong.

I logged out of everything & re-logged into VB/ZS & it all seems good!

I'm not connectible anymore. I found port forwarding but oddly, don't see where to specify the ports.

This is up & running - that's the major hurdle. Thank you again & please get some sleep!

So your PPP device didn't connect to the net? Did you complete steps 10-12 properly, and select the right network device?

Is there a way to make this work using VMWare Server instead of VirtualBox?

It should work just fine.

I tried each of the virtual NIC settings (Bridged, HostOnly and NAT), but can't access the ZeroShell web page at 192.168.0.75 or ping the address. It works if I use VirtualBox, but I prefer to have all my virtual servers running in the same environment when they're all on the same computer.

What am I missing in the VMware setup?

You definitely need to use Bridged networking with VMWare. I don't have a copy, so I can't really help debug that, but make sure your PC is on the right subnet. You may also want to try an alternate simulated NIC type if it gives you options.

Never mind I got it working in VMware. Your ZeroShell instructions are excellent.
