I fired a VM and after typing ifconfig it shows https://drive.google.com/openid=0Bzt1qvomcjTPMDVjcW00WmZNV0U (This) I don't see my VM getting an IPv4 address. It gets an IPv6 address. And i am not able to ping anything

The link to the google drive document is broken. Your instance probably gets the autoconfiguration IPv6 address and doesn't get anything from DHCP. Check two things: Is DHCP service is up? Inside the instance, set the address manually. Can you access the router's IP?

Thank you, I had forgotten to check the Enable DHCP box.

@Bernd I can ping to the router, but I cannot ping to the host or external internet. How do I solve that?
