    Can't get bridged networking to work between linux guest virtual machine and Mac host
    I'm trying to establish bridged networking from linux mint vsn 12 in virtualbox to a Mac Lion host.

    Mac config:

    Network setting: en3 configured by DHCP
    Sharing setting: Internet Sharing selected, Share connection from en3 to computers using en3

    Virtualbox Linux setting:


    Network setting: Bridged Adapter, Name: en3

    I can ping from host (192.168.2.1) to guest (192.168.2.2) and guest to host, but I Cannot ping from the Linux guest to the outside world. Connection in host is up, because I can ping from the Mac host to the outside world.

    Something else that's seems weird to me, in the Mac Network setting, the IP Address generated by DHCP says 169.254.243.185. What the heck is that?? When I open a terminal up in the Mac, however, ifconfig shows its en3 inet address as 192.168.2.1.

    Finally got it resolved: Mac and VM both need to be set to en1.
