I have a windows 2008 server running in VirtualBox and the host OS is Windows 7.

From the host OS, I would like to be able to access the guest OS in explorer like this:

\\name_of_guest_server\some_shared_folder_on_guest_os

Is this possible at all?

Yes it is possible. They just have to be on the same network. –  Oliver Salzburg Apr 28 '12 at 14:22

1 Answer 1

you can also use the

 net use [driveletter]: \\[client_name]\[shared_folder_name]

function to mount the shared folder and speed things up.

other than that, you can still access it the way you mentioned.
