Sharing internet from host os to guest os

I have a host os Windows 7 ultimate in place where virtual box is installed.
Now in virtual box I have installed solaris 10.

There is internet connection present in host windows 7 still I am not able to access internet in solaris 10.

Please help to configure solaris so that internet can be shares across OS

Thanks in advance.

The simplest way is to have an interface in NAT mode in the VM configuration and have DHCP configuring it at the Solaris level.

i think there is something called guest additions(or VMware Tools) that will be added to VMware in order to get all the features on the guest OS

VMWare ? I guess you mean VirtualBox but anyway VirtualBox Guest Additions aren't required in the OP case.

That wasn't the very same problem. You overlook the OP is using a different product. Installing VMWare tools on a VirtualBox guest will probably make it unusable.

i did not installed VMware tools on VirtualBox , each one of them has it's own add ons ,
