I run Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop on my machine and have installed Ubuntu Server 10.10 in a Virtualbox VM. I'm running Virtualbox 4.0.2. It is not virtualbox-ose.
I'd like the guest OS to have an IP address on my local network so that I can run server software and access this from the host OS. My intention is to run a Hudson CI server in the guest OS.
I understand I need to set up a network bridge for this to work, however I don't understand what I need to do for this to happen.
I have tried following the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VirtualBox/Networking, however I run into two issues towards the end:
"To take the modifications into account, restart the VirtualBox host networking script". I don't have Virtualbox-ose installed and guide suggests
sudo /etc/init.d/vboxnet restart, however
/etc/init.d/vboxnetdoes not exist for me.
The end of the guide refers to the
vboxusersgroup. I don't have such a group and am not sure why I need this or how it should be created.
I'm simply looking to allow the guest OS to have an IP on my local network so that I can access servers on the guest OS from the host OS.
What changes do I need to make to both the host and guest OSs for this to work?
