[VirtualBox] WinXP client can't reach the WebGUI or ping pfSense
I hope anyone could answer my questions, because I've allready invested several hours because of this problem.
The problem is, as the title says: The windows xp client can't reach the WebGUI from pfSense. The client can't also ping pfsense :(
The VirtualBox Configuration:
- Windows XP Client
- One Bridged Adapter
with ip adress: 192.168.1.2 subnetmask 255.255.255.0
- pfSense installed on harddrive
- Two bridged adapters
pcn0 LAN -> 192.168.1.1
pcn1 WAN -> 192.168.2.1
I've turned both firewalls off during troubleshooting, but it didn't fixed the problem..
Browsing to 192.168.1.1 doesnt work, and pinging the firewall won't work either.
When I change the client his IP address into 192.168.2.2, and if I ping the pfSense firewall after changing the ip I don't get the msg 'Time-Out' but 'Destination host unreachable'
PS: I also tried the internal adapters on both devices.
UPDATE: When I use the VirtualBox Host adapters on all devices -> I am able to ping between the host (laptop) and the client (virtual windows XP). But pfsense (virtual) won't respond :(
If I recall correctly, I had trouble with running pfSense in a VirtualBox VM when VirtualBox provided emulated AMD (pcn?) NICs to pfSense. The problem went away when I changed (in VirtualBox) the NIC emulation to Intel E1000 (82554 chipset?) - pfSense devices em0 and em1.
It is not clear what you have bridged with what. (It takes some care to get it right.) I presume the Windows VM is bridged with the pfSense LAN NIC and the pfSense WAN NIC is bridged with a NIC connecting to a modem connecting to the Internet.
