TCP/IP between host without LAN to VirtualPC?
How can I communicate between my laptop and a Virtual PC with TCP when the
LAN cable is unplugged?
I have a Lenovo laptop with Vista Ultimate SP1. On this laptop I run Virtual
PC 2007 with XP Pro.
When the laptop is connected to a LAN i can ping the "VPC XP", but when I
unplug the the laptop's LAN cable it is not possible to ping the "VPC XP".
I have tried to install the microsoft "loopback adapter" and setting static
IP address 10.3.6.250 on it and 10.3.6.251 on the "VPC XP", but it is not
possible to ping 10.3.6.251 (ping say: Reply form 10.3.6.250: Destination
host unreachable). I have never tried the loopback adapter before so I
guess I am doing something wrong.
