My OS: Windows 8
Virtualbox guest: Ubuntu 12.10 server
I configured apache server on vbox guest and mapped http, https, ssh port successfully into ubuntu server. It works nice without any problem.
My network card is in NAT mode. After some research I installed samba on guest system. I need to map /var/www/ folder on windows 8 so that I can work directly inside guest server from windows.
Here is my smb.conf
[share] comment = "Vbox server share" path = / writable = yes read only =no browseable = yes force directory mode = 777 force create mode = 777 force security mode = 777 force directory security mode = 777 hide dot files = no create mask = 0777 directory mask = 0777 valid users = @users, tural, root delete readonly = yes guest ok = yes workgroup = WORKGROUP
I know that mapping works when networking is in bridged mode, but I don't want to make my vbox server visible to network.
Also I confgured windows hosts file and mapped port 80 with vbox nat so that, when I open some domain that redirected into localhost on windows, it gets data from virtualbox webserver. If do bridged, I will not be able to open guest webserver
Is there any other way to make drive mapping possible with NAT or something else?
