[opensuse] virtualbox bridged network adapter

(Sorry but I can't make it shorter than this)

I'm trying to simulate a real network using virtualbox and in particular test
the possibility of a single sign on linux/windows lan. Samba is working. I can
see users linux /home folders on the windows machine by entering:


LDAP is working since lynn2 can login at a command line and the
username/password works for seeing the share from windows as above.
/var/log/messages and /var/log/samba/log.smbd confirm this. log.nmbd also
confirms that the samba server is also a logon server.

I have a windows 7 virtual machine setup: opensuse 11.4 DNS server, LDAP server, samba server PDC for a
domain called HH1, gateway Windows 7 running in virtualbox, joined to the domain HH1, DNS set
to, gateway

When I try to logon to the domain from windows, it gives me the error 'No
logon servers available' whether I have the static setup as above or automatic
IP and DNS via dhcp.

I can ping linux from windows but cannot ping windows from linux. Trying to
ping from a linux terminal drops everything. Both machines can
ping the gateway and both can see internet.

I am trying to diagnose the problem of not being able to logon to the Samba
domain and wonder whether the cause could be to something to do with the
widows machine being on virtualbox and not being able to ping it as above.

Virtualbox is set to emulate a real network adapter as follows:
Adapter 1:
Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop (Bridged adapter, eth1)

Could anyone help me with this?
