I am new to Ubuntu. I have a wimax connection(UH-235). I connect the device through USB. The connection must be DHCP(assigned by the service provider). Problem is, the driver+connection manager software is only available for Windows and the source are closed. So I couldn't find any way to connect to internet from Ubuntu. So I setup Windows-7 in vmware-workstation and now I can connect to internet from my guest PC(Windows-7). Is there any possible way to share the connection of guest-Windows7 internet connection to my host (Ubuntu)??
Following Configuration worked for me to communicate with virtual guests installed in Virtual Box using an Ethernet loop-back plug (http://www.juniper.net/techpubs/en_US/junos10.0/information-products/topic-collections/nog-interfaces/fe-ge-loopback-creating.html#id-11866686).
First Edit /etc/network/interfaces and add following lines to that
auto lo iface lo inet loopback
iface br0 inet static
restart network /etc/init.d/networking restart
it seems STP is on in ubuntu bydefault thats the reason Loopback plug not working without the configuration.
