I would like to share a folder from a Linux Guest with a Windows host (with read and write access if possible) in VirtualBox.
So far, I managed to set up two network adapters (one NAT and one host-only) and to install Samba on the Linux guest, but I have the following questions now:
- What do I need to type in
samba.confto share a folder from the Linux guest? (the tutorial provided in one of the links above only explains how to share home directories)
- Are there any Samba commands that I need to run on the guest to enable sharing?
- How do I make sure that these folders are only available to the host OS and not on the Internet?
- Once the Linux guest is setup, how do I access each of the individual shared folders from the Windows host? I read that I need to mount a drive on Windows to do this, but do I use Samba logins, or Linux logins, also do I use localhost? or do I need to set up an IP for this?
