comment Having trouble mounting CDs (even music CDs) - Ubuntu 10.04
Tried another method for finalising the disk, this method did not work, so started again with fresh CDs. It now works. I think my OS was in a weird state and something was corrupted along the way.

comment Having trouble mounting CDs (even music CDs) - Ubuntu 10.04
Done, edited. I created two CDs, one with wodim, the other with the standard GUI CD Creator (on a Gnome system). I tried both CDs on a Windows machine. One shows content (I thin the GUI created one), the other seems empty (blank). I tried on my Ubuntu 10.04 machine again after a reboot and both CDs are viewed as blanks and can now listen to the audio CD (albeit with lots of errors of the type main input error: ES_OUT_SET_(GROUP_)PCR is called too late, increasing pts_delay to...). I believe something got corrupted and neither session got closed at the end of the creation.

comment Ubuntu 12.04 under VB 4.1.14 — ping resolves domain, but wget fails
@Lord of Time, yeah, I suspect this is the case but since I'm doing something I'm not supposed to, I can't ask, hence me trying to debug it for myself.

@Gevorg, I have no idea of the global network setup here. I work in a large organisation and there are all sorts of firewall rules and restricted access. But from my host system I can access the Internet. I know that our http access is filtered, but I do not know what technology is used, so there may well be a proxy.

Sorry I did not see your reply for a while, just like you I do expect the NAT to make my guest transparent, but it seems our firewall rules are a little wiser than that.

@Gevorg, sorry I did not see your reply for a while. Yes, nslookup returns what I would expect. See edit above.
