Thanks for a fast reply as. I'd done that before but tried it again but still no connetion.
Network in virtual box is set up in 2 places:
- VBox management console (or whatever it's called) -> File -> Preferences -> Network, here you should find an adapter (vboxnet0)
and for each guest machine:
- Guest -> Settings -> Network ... (the one you checked out right now)
If you have another guest, other than the XP, you can check if that one is working, will help to understand if the problem is guest side or host side.
