This question already has an answer here:

I'm using Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS as my Host , Oracle VirtualBox is installed on the same host having RHEL as a guest .

I'm assigning a static ip to the client OS , other than my host eth0 ip address , so the challenge here is connect to guest machine through loopback adapter but i can't see the loopback adapter shown on Vbox network settings , only eth0 (Ethernet) and wlan0 (WIFI)

Any help would be much appreciated

Thanks in advance
