I want to set up LAMP on Virtual Box on Windows7. I am wondering if it is possible to (regular cable modem from ISP connected to desktop through ethernet port, dynamic IP)

1) Connect from Windows7 to Linux (Apache, MySQL-server, etc...) 2) Connect from Linux to the Internet 3) Connect from Windows 7 to the Internet

...all at the same time?

Thank you.

From VB support forum I know that I need to have 2 Adapters in Network settings: 1 - Host-only Adapter (to connect CentOS on VB to Win7) and 2 - NAT (to enable Internet access for CentOS).

Besides that there are some other things, like changing hostname in Linux and making changes in configuration files, like /etc/httpd/config/httpd.config and /etc/sysconfig/network

Another thing is that I dont know what address to use if I want to connect to Apache from IE on Win7, what address to use with SSH etc...
