  • Cannot ping virtual server without NIC plugged in

    Hi all

    I have a virtual server which i want to connect to from the host. But i can only do this when the NIC of my host is connected to a hub. I want to be to do \\server\c$ without having to do this. Is there a way?

    Thanks

    Are you running Virtual Server or do you have a Server O/S running in a Virtual PC (or is it on VMWare)?

      I was able to do this by installing the loopback adapter.

        It is Virtual Server 2005 R2 running Server 2003 as the guest OS.

        How do you install the loopback adapter?
