When there is no wifi connection or ethernet connection, I'm unable to reach the OS in VirtualBox from the same machine (i.e. the host OS). From reading this post: http://askubuntu.com/questions/247625/what-is-the-loopback-device-and-how-do-i-use-it this is because:
When a network interface is disconnected--for example, when an Ethernet port is unplugged or Wi-Fi is turned off or not associated with an access point--no communication on that interface is possible, not even communication between your computer and itself.
That answer recommends using the "loopback device" instead, but loopback is
127.0.0.0/8 and my VirtualBox OS is set to a static ip of 192.168.1.111 (and I don't want to have to change this). How do I make it reachable?
* Host Machine (Laptop): openSUSE 13.1 * VirtualBox: CentOS 6 (192.168.1.111)
I want to ssh from openSUSE to CentOS.
