I have a virtualbox VM that is broken. It won't boot normally. I don't want to bother trying to fix it but I do want to get some files off it that I need.
If I hold down the shift key I can get to a prompt allowing me to boot into recovery mode and from there I can select the option netroot and I'm in. I can get to the files on that machine which I need and the internet works (I can run
wget --spider http://example.com succesfully.) So it seems like I should have everything I need to get the files off. But how? I thought about trying to setup an FTP server but I'm wondering if there isn't an easier way.
I am running Ubuntu 12.04 on the host and 10.04LT on the client (VM).
