Network on solaris

Hi,
i have installed solaris on virtual box in my desktop, i wanted to know how to make it network enabled(nated network). Nated network means it will use same IP as of my windows right? so is it possible that using the same IP i can enable the network on this virtual box.
Thanks in advance.

Using the same IP as the physical host will not work, the nat'd solaris box has its own ip address thats routed via the vmware interface defined on the physical host and uses the physical interface thats on the physical host to pass traffic to the rest of the world.... You will not be able to route directly from external hosts to the VM using the same IP as the physical box if thats what your trying to do ... Nat does not work like this ... You'd need to employ some kind of PAT (port forwarding) from the physical host to the VM to have any connections available to the outside world to the VM
