VPN from VirtualBox. Safe?

Postby dawz0r » 21 Jun 2014 19:36

I connect to my VPN from my Solyd X installation in my VirtualBox. My host is Mac OS X. My network settings are set to bridged. Then I thought I would create a tunnel directly from my Solyd X to my VPN provider. But if I'm looking in my network, I will also access my Mac. How is this possible? I also see all other users who have Macs. What I'm afraid of is that I let the other people into my network. Because obviously I have not a closed tunnel between my VB and VPN server. I do not want to connect directly from my Mac. I do not want to send unnecessary data through a VPN.
Does anyone have knowledge about this situation?

If anyone is interested I got the answer to my question in the VB forum.

What you see is a normal behaviour. Normally VPN software doesn't stop local traffic (traffic that doesn't require a gateway).
