I use Hotspot Shield, a Windows VPN tunnel. If I run Ubuntu or the Chrome OS inside Virtual Box inside Windows, will their web apps go through Hotspot Shield in my Windows?

Software/Hardware used:
Windows Vista

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I think that would depend on how the Hotspot Shield software works, and how networking was configured for the guest machines.

If NAT networking is being used, then guests network operations could probably go through the tunnel, but if BRIDGED networking was configured I don’t think it will use the tunnel.

The best you can do to be sure is testing.
