How to mount ext3, ext4 partition sitting on “Fixed-Size VDI” VirtualBox HardDisk ?
I have set up a VM of Ubuntu server, have installed OpenSSH, and am now trying to connect to it using Putty. Within Putty, under “Host name”, I put “Ubuntu”, given this is what I thought it was called when I set up the VM. However, I just get the error: “Connection Timed Out”.
I’ve switched to using Arch Linux for most of my day to day work and don’t need Windows for anything but gaming and the couple of apps that aren’t ported to Linux like OneNote. My Linux distribution is hosted in VirtualBox with Windows as host, and I quite like it that way, snapshots are incredibly useful.
I created a Debian VM on VirtualBox with two interfaces: a NAT one (for accessing internet) and a host-only one. However, I do not know how to make both interfaces work at the same time. If I the define the host-only as the adapter 1, I can access my VM from the host but not the internet; if I define the NAT one as adapter 1, I can access the internet but cannot reach my guest Debian.
I need to run a software system that is intended to be installed as an appliance on a dedicated machine. In order to save energy, I plan to run the system on a VirtualBox VM instead.
When I type the command
service vboxdrv setup in my CentOS 7 terminal, I get the following error:
Using Fedora or Ubuntu for the host with firewalls turned off on each side (vbox guest&host), what do I have to do to reach the guest machine using a NAT interface just like it would be with a bridged interface? (Only from the vbox host!)
