I have VirtualBox on my notebook (running openSUSE 13.1) hosting
testing purposes openSUSE 13.1 server. I wonder how to configure
VB's and hosted's OS networking to be able to access server
services from
hosting computer. All my trials failed: I lost network on server
and I
can't connect it. I don't need to access hosted system from outer
network. Any advice? All the best,
* disable your firewalls on your Host and guest ! (or try without

* Go in the VirtualBox manager,

* Menu File, Preferences (or CTRL-G)
* "Network", then click on "+" on right
* Edit its properties, Choose your Host IP adress as
* close
It is host only network, right? No need to configure DHCP?

* right click on your virtual machine, "Settings" (or CTRL-S)
* Network, Adapter 1 : "Attached to NAT". Use it for repositories
In hosted systém I assigned DHCP to this interface. I'm not able to
from hosted server to anywhere. When I try to access some IP address,
I get
error about unreachable network, when I connect to hostname, I get
error about
unknown host. I don't know what is wrong

* Network, Adapter 2 : "Host only Adapter"

* On your Guest use "yast2 lan" to set
Static IP is set for second network interface connecting only to
host. Nice, I
can connect from the host to the server.

Ok ?
Not at all, but step forward. ;-)

All the best,

I understand, of course if you want to connect to a server behind a
you have to use "port forwarding" in "network properties" :)
Which service do you want to run ?

It isn't behind nat. On laptop moving among varous networks I run VirtualBox.
There I run testing server (mostly web services). I wish to connect to the
hosted server from hosting computer. When I set up on host-only adapter in VB
and used it as second network device in server, it works. On the hosted server
I have 2 network devices: one connected to VB'S NAT providing DHCP and so on.
Point is to use it to acces on-line repositories etc. It is default VB's
settings and in another hosted systems, it works. Second device has static IP
and is connected directly to the host. This one works.
