LSA 7.1.9 PVS - No internet access from the virtual machine - VirtualBox
I have a problem with my VirtualBox settings for the LSA 7.1.9 PVS.
I'm using VirtualBox 5.1.8, tried it with 5.1.12 with the same results. I don't have the option to have a cable connection, so I'm trying to bridge my Wireless connection. I'm on a Lenovo Ideapad Y50 with Broadcom 802.11ac BCM4352 Network Adapter. Using Windows 8.1 Home Premium
On my laptop I cannot acces the internet from my virtual machine. I tried pretty much everything in all other related posts.
With bridged adapter I don't get an IP address (http://:9080)
Here I tried reinstalling VirtualBox with the parameter -msiparams NETWORKTYPE=NDIS5 as suggested in one of the posts, with the same result
With NAT the virtual machine does have access to the internet, but I cannot connect to the Pega server from my host using the IP address presented
Tried having both a Host-only and NAT adapter, same result
Tried using Host-only, and bridge the 2 adapters in windows, I can connect to the Pega server but the virtual machine has no internet access
It is a quite pressing issue as I'm taking my LSA second part next monday. The bridged adapter works perfectly on my home pc which is cable connected, but strongly prefer to do it on my laptop.
This may be a compatibility issue between the network driver on the player and the hardware on the laptop. It is in no way related to the PRPC software. Unfortunately we can't give you alot of guidance other than playing with the different network settings on the player since it is not our software.The best source of information to solve this problem would be the virtual box forums ( https://forums.virtualbox.org/ ). Others have had success using VMWare player and importing the ovf file to that player to run the software.
You should be aware that the CLSA Part II exam does not require any external network connections to be established, therefore as long as you can connect to the server via the browser you are good to go.
