    Hi, i have a problem with the network in the VPC.
    We use a lot of licences here for our Administrators.
    They have a W2000 Computer with DHCP enabled.
    The VPC is a Windows XP with Service pack 2 over NAT.
    Firewall is disabled. NIC on VPC is DHCP enabled.
    The using of Internet, Net Shares are ok on the VPC, but the ping
    from the VPC to another Computer does not work.

    If the User on the HOST is a local Admin there, the ICMP is ok,
    if the user is only a Power User, the ping does not go.
    Whats that ?

    Thanks for your Answer.

    Andi

  2. This is a limitation of Shared Networking under Virtual PC. Is there
    any reason why people need to use ICMP inside of their virtual machines?

    Hi Benjamin,

    we use the Virtual PC as a platform for our Administrators.
    The Host Computer is under Control of a Software Deployment System,
    and we give the Virtual PC to admin hundreds of other Systems
    (Win/UNIX/Mainframe) and our people have only there Full control, under the
    HOST System only Poweruser rights. We can reduce in this way the service
    calls
    for the Host Computer. We must work in the performance of the VPC, and the
    ICMP Protocol is one of the basic functions for Administration and Monitoring.
    Can you give me a tip, which right we must add to allow the icmp functions ?

    The ICMP on the Host Computer is useable, but we want to have the VPC
    as a computer in a box with all functions. We work here for government in
    Germany
    and if we find a good way to use the VPC, this can be a lot of more licences
    :))
    Look at here: www.ldi.rlp.de

    Thank you for your time.
    Andi

  6. Hi Andi,

    Bad news (from a Dev on my team):

    In order to support ICMP over Shared Networking (NAT), we need to create
    a raw socket. Only Administrators are allowed to do this. To my
    knowledge, there is no mechanism for granting a non-Administrator the
    ability to use a raw socket.

    Hi Ben,

    thank you for your help, so we must allow this protocol under
    the HOST Computer, i hope that this can be a feature of a
    coming release, to make the VPC real a computer in a box :))

    Cheers Andi
