Preview on LAN when running Virtual Machine?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Tue Feb 28, 2012 4:33 am

Just wondering if anybody who runs Windows in a virtual machine has been able to get the Preview on LAN working for them? I've followed the tut., but I am still having troubles, I am assuming the virtualization has something to do with it?

Any ideas?

If you're working from within a VM, you might have to set up two firewalls - the firewall in the VM, and the firewall on the host OS. Does that help?

@Ashley, yes, I've been looking into the firewall settings for MacOSX, it seems I may just need to grant permission to my VM software..though, for some reason, I doubt it will be that simple

I'll give it a shot when I got home from work and see how it turns out.

I was wondering if this was ever solved? I have a problem with this at the moment. I have turned off both firewalls to test and I still have problems previewing over my VMware LAN.

@xbuoix I solved it for me by switching my Virtual Machines network adapter to "Bridged" and I was good to go. I am not really savvy enough to give you any real reason for why it worked, but it did!

Great! I'll try this later when I get home and I'll keep everyone updated.

Make sure the firewall on the VM box is disabled. I had the same issues until i disabled the VM windows firewall.

Woah, it's been a month since I've touched construct because of finals at school and all. But, yeah I've verified that it works when bridged. Thanks @the_chosen_byte
