FreeNAS on Microsoft VirtualPC 2007 does not get proper DHCP address.

By 1bn0 ·
I have installed VirtualPC 2007 on one of my Desktops. IBM ThinkCenter P4 3.0 GHz, 1 GB RAM.

I have created and can run concurrently 3 Windows 2000 Virtual Desktops.

When I boot FreeNAS by capturing the iso, everything seems to work fine except the IP address. I change the networking to use DHCP. That part processes normally.

When I check the address , it is

My W2K machines aquire a DHCP addres from the same network as the host pc (XP). 198.205.x.x

Does anyone know why I am getting this address in FreeNAS instead of a "real" local network address

Did you ever figure this out

I'm having a similar problem. I get no response from my DHCP server. I haven't tried loading anything else besides FreeNAS so I don't know if it's a configuration problem or if FreeNAS just doesn't play well with MS VirtualPC 2007.
