How to share out the broadband Internet access with the VM?

(OP)
Hi Everyone,

I've set up a VM. The OS is Windows 2000 Professional. I'm using Windows XP Professional as the host. I'm using DSL. By the way, how do I share out the broadband connection to the VM?

Anyone can advise further please? Thank you.

How did you setup your networking on the VM?

I should suggest that you use Bridged Networking. Than the virtual machine will get an IP-address and behave like a new machine on your network (this requires that you have an DHCP-server running0. Otherwise you could use the NAT option. Than a LAN is created on your host computer. In this case the host's machine IP will be used and within the Virtual machine the DHCP service will hand out the IPaddress to the Virtual machine

Hope this helps

Jack
