    Firewall blocking internet access by guest

    Hi,

    I can connect to the internet from my host PC but can only connect to
    internet using Virtual PC if I disable firewall (on host).

    Anybody able to help me out? This is my situation:

    Host PC
    --------
    Windows XP Pro
    Network Connections :
    1. Dial-Up broadband internet connection with "Internet Connection Sharing"
    enabled.
    2. Local Area Connection - MS Loopback Adapter IP = 192.168.0.1

    Guest Virtual PC
    -----------------
    Windows 2003 Server
    Network Connection:
    1. Local Area Connection - Obtain IP address automatically

    Virtual PC Settings
    -------------------
    Networking : set to "Microsoft Loopback Adapter"


    Is there a way I can enable the guest to use internet WITHOUT disabling
    firewall? I'm using Sunbelt Personal Firewall (Free edition) on my host XP
    PC.

    Thanks in advance

    That really depends on the firewall. You should be able to configure it
    so that it will allow that to happen. It needs to know that the 192.168.0.0
    subnet is part of your internal network.
