This problem has been plaguing me for a while... I have several machines in
my domain that are running Windows XP with Windows NT 4.0 SP6 in Virtual PC
2004/2007 (some of both.) They work just fine in my office.
I also have a remote site that is connected by a single data T1 and does not
have its own domain controller, it uses ours.
I can set a machine up in my office and the Virtual NT machine works just
fine. Then when I take it to the remote office, the Virtual NT machine has no
network whatsoever. I've read the forums about installing the VM additions
and using the DEC 21140 driver
, and that all appears to be correct (i.e. the
NT machine shows the correct 21140 driver.)
Here's the weird part: If I'm at the remote site and install the VM
additions, the Virtual NT machine reboots and connects to the network just
fine. But then the host XP machine loses its network. If I reboot the host,
XP has networking again, but NT does not. There's got to be a way for both
machines to use the network at the same time, like I said the same machine
works just fine in my home office...
