  • 1.  Bridged Adapter

    Under the Bridged Adapter, your virtual machines behave as any other computer on the network where the hosting system resides; it bridges the
    virtual and physical networks. The outside world can directly communicate with the guest machine.

    The Bridged Adapter connects through the host to whatever is your default network device that allocates IP addresses for your physical network. Virtual PC 2007 connects to one of your installed network cards and exchanges network packets directly; it bridges the virtual and physical networks. In normal use it will try to get a standard 192.168.x.x IP address from your router, so that your virtual machine can look like a perfectly respectable physical device alongside all the other iron-mongery on your network

    2.  You cannot use any USB device in Virtual PC 2007.  It has no USB emulation.

    3.  Com1 & Com2 are the names given to your serial ports or installed communication devices.

    Since you cannot use a USB LAN adapter, there are no step-by-step instructions applicable.
