I have Lubuntu 12.04 (64bit) with VirtualBox 4.2 installed and the setup below:
eth0adapter connected to LAN (having static IP
192.168.0.1and it is the default gateway).
- ISC DHCP server listening on
eth0, to configure PCs (in LAN) with dynamic IPs.
ppp0adapter (wirless Mblaze USB modem) to connect to Internet.
eth0has NATed to
ppp0, so that all PCs connected to the LAN can have Internet.
vboxnet0host only network (selected for the Virtual Machines).
I would like to have a bridge combining
eth0 to make it a single network (say
br0) and have the DHCP server serve IPs through this new bridge.
br0 now should take the static IP of
eth0, so that the bridge can be the new gateway.
Please note I neither need Bridged Adapter nor NAT solution in VirtualBox setting UI. I would like to configure all these manually editing all the associated configuration files.
Any help deeply appreciated. Thanks in advance.
