I do use Gnome Boxes as well, running a Win 7 VM. I never had any issues about VPN connections from the VM when the host is connected. If you have some static routes on OpenVPN, maybe will be necessary to set them up also in the VM.

Assuming you have correctly set up your virtual machine, a remote desktop server should be up and running. It will provide direct access to the VM’s console. Depending on which version of Virtual Box (OSE or proprietary) you have installed, it will be either VNC (OSE) or RDP (proprietary). To use RDP, you need to have the “Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension ...

There is an easy way to do this, which circumvents PhpVirtualbox, thus letting you use your keyboard for the installation. Connect to your remote machine via ssh with either the -X or the -Y option: ssh -Y myuser@remotepc Then start the Virtualbox GUI from the CLI, /usr/bin/VirtualBox & and now you are free to use your local keyboard.

After some help from linuxdev2013 this is what I did: The problem was that the partitions were somehow locked. So: I right Clicked both sd2 and sd5 and chose "Deactivate". I resized the extended (sda2) partition. I resized the lvm (sda5) partition. The problem was fixed I should add that in the VM the new space was not available, so I had to run ...

Generally, Windows NTFS formatted drives are fairly immune to fragmentation issues until they get to less than around 10% free. Indeed, there are plenty of people who consider that NTFS actually runs faster with a level of fragmentation. However, if you see a sudden increase it will be because there isn't really enough space to handle the data updates ...

The answer was to mount /dev/sr0 instead of /dev/cdrom. So the following command worked: sudo mount /dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom I had to create /mnt/cdrom with mkdir for this to work.

If you want to try to work with virtual networks, it is likely to virtual switches work with various virtual machines. Separately, as a part of the distribution protocol or operating system component or as part of a virtual machine. Or you can install virtual adapters and assign IP addresses and MAC addresses, but in this case you will have only an ...

You can change it to 1. Go in to virtual machine settings and then change the number of processors to 1. That should fix it.

Well, I have an answer, but you're not going to like it. As VMware Workstation 8 is designed to work only on Windows Vista or Windows 7, and Windows 8 support was not introduced until version 9, You have no choice but to upgrade. Unfortunately, you can no longer get Workstation 9, and Workstation 11 is the only version available to buy, and the only ...

I'd setup ICS on the host between a virtual NIC and the actual network adapter. The hardware adapter will join the hotel network, share the connection to the virtual NIC, which will be the gateway for your virtual guest network. // Add a virtual NIC https://technet.microsoft.com/en-ca/library/cc708372%28v=ws.10%29.aspx // Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) ...

I had similar issue (i.e. my mouse never showed up at all). None of the above solutions worked for me. What worked for me is select the VM by clicking and highlighting it in the VirtualBox. Then navigate to the "Settings". Click on the "Display" in the left pane. Then inside the "Video" tab, un-check "Enable 3D Acceleration". Apparently I had clicked on this ...

In the Nat section of the PFSense, there is a one to one TAB that allows mapping option to allow all traffic on an exteranl IP to map to an internal IP. It is pretty straight forward. There are some other configs you will need to add. You will need virtaul IP's for all of your external IPs on the Wan interface. You will need to set up the rules to allow ...

If your third virtual machine is on the same virtual network and you have root access on it, you can start sniffing in promiscuous mode - this will make all packets (even ones going to/coming from first and second virtual machine) land on the interface of the third virtual machine. Keep in mind that the virtual network itself (and all 3 virtual machines) ...

There are several ways you can figure it out, but here are the two most reliable methods (in my opinion)... Method #1 (most reliable) drew@debian:~$ /sbin/ifconfig -a | grep HWaddr eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 08:00:27:f7:28:18 eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 08:00:27:52:8b:6e eth2 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 08:00:27:81:d7:5c ...

enp0s3 or enp0s8 are Ethernet network periph # serial port # Running one of the following should help (especially if you know what HOST connections were labeled what in the Vbox): ip addr ip -a lspci  /  lsusb                 (both show Model numbers; lspci is generally more telling)

Please do at least some basic research. The Wikipedia article on KVM says that it is implemented as a Linux kernel module (and later ported to Illumos), thus mostly type-2 like VirtualBox. But since KVM comes as a standard part of the OS, you could also say it's right in the middle. (However, you still need to install the user-space tools (qemu ...

It's not renaming the adapter, its a different (virtual) adapter that abstracts your physical adapter for use with the virtual switched network Hyper-V uses. Here's a good visualization of how the virtual network works: The orange box is the adapter on your host. You should be able to use PowerShell 4.0's Rename-VMNetworkAdapter command to rename the ...

Check if vboxdrv is loaded (this is a kernel module, so you have to use lsmod | grep vboxdrv If it's not there, try to start it manually: modprobe vboxdrv and start virtualbox again. In some situations, it seems vboxdrv is not loaded by the operating system. I don't know how to solve that in Fedora though. It could be in a blacklist, stopping it from ...

Setup Squid Proxy Server on the third VM. Set all adapters to bridged. Proxy the traffic from the two test machines through Squid. Install wireshark on the proxy and monitor eth0. Have fun. This guy probably has as good an answer for you as any. http://serverfault.com/questions/306024/how-to-route-network-traffic-of-a-host-via-another-host

Your CPU is missing the VT-x feature,so you can't expect to run a Virtual Machine fast. http://ark.intel.com/products/42925/Intel-Pentium-Processor-T4500-1M-Cache-2_30-GHz-800-MHz-FSB. Furthermore 64bit guests requires this.

Since you only have 1 public ip address for multiple machines you would have to set up a NAT router and forward the ports to each host. I would prefer using the integrated NAT-feature of your virtualization software and set up port forwarding.

I don't think that the VDI size itself can be bigger than the partition size where it resides. Do you mean that the 2TB is the dynamic size allocated to the VDI? If yes, then i think you still can do it. But, you miss one step after creating a large zero-fill file. You need to delete it, and then you just power off the VM and then compact it.

Went into the VM settings, disabled 3D Support and put rendering mode into software from there. Applets now run absolutely fine

Albeit not a very desirable solution: install a screen recording utility on the guest system, such as Fraps. It means you would have to install it on each guest system, but saves you from fighting with the driver/device issues you are facing. Edit: Set your virtual audio device to ICH AC97. Source And install Guest Additions. Source

As of 2015 May, KVM's default video driver is set to QXL. Thus, there is no need any changes. I installed ubuntu-14.04 as the guest VM, and it working find with HD video resolution.

What you might consider, is looking at a DigitalOcean container. Containers are a form of a Virtual Machine, but the kernel is on the host of the VM, which means that the size of the container and the resource usage is lower. There are a lot of other container providing services, so do some research on that.

There is a Cycle multiple monitors option in the View menu. I use it with Ubuntu on Windows and it works perfectly.

Figured it out. Problem was with the bridged connection for some reason. Using NAT works fine if accessing locally from the host machine with the virtual machine's IP and the necessary port.

The reason why it doesnt work, is that the virtual machine is using a generic virtual CD/DVD ROM driver. The actual hardware is abstracted from the VM and all it knows is that there is a CD/DVD ROM device is present. The reality is, there might not actually be hardware there. It could just be an .ISO or even another virtual drive. Does this mean it cant ...

I'm using Kubuntu 15.04, VirtualBox 4.3.26 This assumes that the sd card device is /dev/mmcbl0 , and the output .vdk will be sd-card.vmk : sudo VBoxManage internalcommands createrawvmdk -filename ./sd-card.vmdk -rawdisk /dev/mmcblk0 Not sure this is the best way to fix permissions, but it worked: sudo chmod 777 /dev/mmcblk0 sudo chmod 777 ./sd-card.vmdk ...

You are correct in your assumption as to the "host only" network, but this network is also viewable to your host pc. However if you create a custom network for the adapters on all three machines, facing inwards, you will be able to control it more thoroughly. But you will of course have to set up either a DHCP server or set the IP addresses manually. Now ...

According to my Windows Server class on TestOut LabSim, there are three types of virtual networks you can set up in Hyper-V. You might want an Internal network (you could put a file on the host hypervisor and then move it to the vm). Or, you could use a router to block access to the internet from the VM's mac or IP address. External. In an external ...

Simply don't specify a wireless adapter, and you are set! It's in the settings. Right-click the Virtual Computer in Hyper-V Manager, click Settings>Network Adapter>Virtual Switch, and set to Not Connected.

You can’t. You can, however, set a static IP configuration inside the VM, leaving out DNS servers and the gateway. That will make it unable to communicate with anything outside your local network.
