To get a “EOS VirtualBox hosting Windows guest: host-only networking” to work from scratch, the below steps were taken.
The objective is to access through the EOS FileManger under Gnome
smb://??? a drive inside the Windows guest.
- VB: Tools / Network Manager
- VB: VM Settings
- VM: Control Panel, Network, Adapter Properties
sudo touch /etc/samba/smb.conf
sudo systemctl status smb
smbclient -L hostname -U%
Here, I am stuck. Any advice is welcome.
I am currently on my phone so I cant fully see those settings but it looks like you gave the host and the guest the same IP address.
They need to be different. Also, you dont need a default gateway on the guest.
Appreciate. Setting in the Windows guest are amended.
I am not sure how to get the
samba portion on the EOS host to work…
Really? A host-only looks like that.
A default gateway lets your VM know how to get to other networks.
In a host-only network, there is no access to other networks so a default gateway isn’t needed.
Sorry, I have confused some settings and close this thread. I will post again, when the problem is more clear cut. Thank you.
