I am running Win XP on both Host and Guest. I am connected to a VPN (OpenVPN) and all my applications will have my VPN's ip address. I want to make some of my apps use my real ip address (instead of my vpn ip address) while the rest of my apps continue using my vpn ip address. Here, Panagiotis instructs how to achieve this: I've been trying to set this up on my PC but so far I can't seem to make it work. So far I set up 2 NICs for my VM (Bridged and Host). Next I am trying to do Step 1, V2 instructions but here is where I don't know if I am doing it correctly: I go to Network Connections, and go to VirtualBox Host Only Network's properties, TCP/IP Properties, then would I change the default gateway to my guest's IP? (let's say this ip address is 192.168.195.3). And would I find this ip address by running ipconfig /all on my guest or host? Then I go to firefox and would change the proxy settings to this same ip address (192.168.195.3), and then what do I put in as the port? Does anyone know what I am doing wrong and how I can correctly implement this? Panagiotis? I would really appreciate it, thanks!
