I'm using the VirtualBox Host-Only Network to communicate between host (Windows 7 Pro x64) and guest (CentOS 6.4). The host uses a static IP:
I've been using this configuration for months, never had any trouble.
Suddenly this morning, I couldn't connect to my guest. I traced the source of the problem to the Host-Only Network connection, which strangely did not use the IP configuration requested:
So I temporarily reverted to
Obtain an IP address automatically, then set my static IP again, and it finally picked
192.168.56.1 as expected. Temporary glitch, I thought. An hour later though, same problem. The IP address was set back to an
Autoconfiguration IPv4 Address.
Anyone already experienced that?
I've updated a few days ago to VirtualBox 4.2.18, and yesterday evening Windows installed 24 updates.
Could this be a VirtualHost or Windows bug, or did I miss something there?
