hi all
the issue is when I boot the VM machine on VirtualBox, I get IP address which is, I cannot ping it although I cannot access through the browser,

however, when I change the NIC Setting and make it Bridge, I get IP address of same subnet of my machine, and I can both ping it and access it, but as you know it is dynamic IP not static,

so what I want is either to solve the first issue, or to make the IP static and bridged !!

help please,

The problem is from your adapter settings. If you want your host pc to be able to talk with its guest in virtualbox, use "host only adapter".Also disable your firewall.For GNS3 iou, make sure the correct adapter settings is used, also make sure you set it well in gns3. Then log into the gns3iou with username:root, password:cisco.Then use the command "ifconfig" to know the ip address it allocated for itself, use it n the browser.

Either set static IP OR use IP Profiler to make a DHCP enabled profile (for daily internet use) & on one static (for VBox OR VMware WS).
First Option is better & hassle free.
