Hello,

I am following this instruction:

If you are using LibreOffice: $ wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11993667/LibreofficeRed5/red5

The problem is in my VM Machine I am unable to connect to the internet.

--------------

davy@ubuntu:~/Desktop/openmeetings$ wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11993667/LibreofficeRed5/red5
--2014-03-29 06:56:26-- https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11993667/LibreofficeRed5/red5
Resolving dl.dropboxusercontent.com (dl.dropboxusercontent.com)... failed: Name or service not known.
wget: unable to resolve host address `dl.dropboxusercontent.com'
davy@ubuntu:~/Desktop/openmeetings$

------------

I also do not know how to make the internet works in my VM (it already works in my laptop).

Also, what's other alternative to make the same syntax works?

Thanks before.

Is your VM connected to your local network? What are the contents of its /etc/resolv.conf file (post the contents here)? What is the address of your LAN's router? Who is your ISP? Do you know what their DNS server addresses are? If not, go to the admin web page of your router and look there. Finally, if you know your local router address (such as 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.254, etc), can you ping it or access it from your VM?

Answer these questions and I may be able to help. Without this information, one can only guess, and that + $5 will get you a nice latte at Starbucks... :-)

And, for now, the last question: what is the virtual machine manager that you used to create/run/manage your VM?

Correct me if I'm wrong but can't we just point him to Google's 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 for DNS? Makes life easier :P

Another question on top of rubberman's: what does the ip route command inside your VM return?
