re: How to run Virtual Machine Image on VirtualBox -

GeorgeClark et al

I've downloaded the FosWiki virtual machine 2.1.2 and running it on VirtualBox Version 5.0.14 r105127.

The VM runs and am able to log in as 'root'.

I've a couple of problems.
  1. When the network is configured as NAT, my browser is unable to connect via 10.0.2.xx - the vboxmanage commands on the guide does not work for setting port forwarding. vboxmanage reports it does not recognize the machine even though I gave it the correct name.
  2. I can't config a host network connection either
Part of the problem perhaps is the guide refers to a very old version of VirtualBox.

Help would be appreciated.

In newer versions of VirtualBox you can click the Advanced toggle in the Network configuration for each adaptor, then click on the port forwarding button and fill in the table something like below:
Name Protocol Host IP Host Port Guest IP Guest Port
www TCP   8088   80
ssh TCP 2201   80

I hope that helps, please report back if you have been successful or not.
