You need to edit your Vagrantfile. There should already be an example line: # vb.customize ["modifyvm", :id, "--memory", "1024"] uncomment it and modify the value to your liking. If there isn't one, enter this block: config.vm.provider "virtualbox" do |vb| vb.customize ["modifyvm", :id, "--memory", "1024"] end below the Vagrant.configure(...

In VirtualBox, the network connection is by default set to NAT. This means that there's a virtual router in place that allows internet traffic to go through, but blocks everything else, unless you open the specific ports. There are a few routes you can take here. Either open the ports or change the network to a bridged network type. The problem with the ...

What guest OS's do you use? I use Windows 10 and my guest OS's are connected. In your guest settings (Virtualbox), go to network adapter, and set the attachment to NAT. If your guests are Windows 7 or later, then set the adapter type to "Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop" and check "cable connected". My XP 32-bit guest's adapter type is set to PCnet-Fast III.

Family Safety is a feature of Windows Live, which is limited to Windows only. He will not be affected in his Ubuntu VM if you setup Family Safety. In order to affect everyone and everything, set filters on your router. Some routers have specific filters that can be enabled/disabled, such as adult content, casino, drugs, violents, etc. These filters are ...

By default the Guest runs using a NAT network, meaning that it is secured to not let anything get out unless you make it possible. A virus can always come in the Guest, but it will then be contained inside the guest. However, for a virus to reach the guest, you will need to do something that will get the virus in there, such as run malicious code. (like ...

from localhost:28101 to localhost:28101 on the host. Local host means local. If you want to access it from another host then bind the aplication to an external IP. Either abridged one (easiest on almost all points when using VMs) or some NAtted translation one.

You've done your dev all wrong if you're testing with "localhost" rather than a named-based virtual host setup where you can create your own (real) dummy domain and you can then configure your guests/LAN machines to point your dummy domain to the webserver IP via the HOSTS or DNS which will mean no matter what machine you use whenever you go to your dummy ...

arpwatch should detect the MAC address change if it is listening on the network interface the servers are listening on. It would then send an email to the configured address unless this is disabled. However, if one of the servers was cloned from the other, they may both have the same MAC address. This will make it impossible to detect using ARP. Check ...

As a update, it is possible to create a Wi-Fi hotpost within a virtual box VM by using an external USB dongle. This method allows the VM to create Wi-Fi hotspot which can share the internet connection of the host. Useful information about creating a Wi-Fi hotspot can be found here.

Sure you can Bridged networking is like you have a switch where your host and guest connected at the same time. So your guest should have different IP address in a fact, or you will have IP address conflict instead.

You can use a CMD command to add an IP route. Example adapted to your case: ROUTE ADD 10.10.0.0 MASK 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.20 METRIC 5 ^-net to reach ^-subnet mask ^-gateway to use ^-keep that number low You can use the parameter -p after ROUTE to keep that route across reboots (i.e. ROUTE -P). And remember to run that command in an ...

You could try instead WinGate. WinGate like CCProxy is a windows based proxy server. It is free for 10 concurrent users. Its web proxy supports connecting via an upstream proxy (http, SOCKS4, SOCKS4A or HTTP tunneling). Disclaimer: I work for Qbik who are the authors of WinGate

Run your VM from command line: VBoxManage startvm nameOfYourVBox --type headless Console access to your VM: You'll need an SSH server for Windows then ssh myUserName@myBoxIp Acces to Regedit: it's a graphical program, so you can't use it just from command line. An CLI alternate is the reg command, more info with reg /?.

You need to get the installer (.exe) inside the guest OS. There are several ways to do this: download from the internet inside the guest OS connect a USB flash drive, copy the installer onto it, and make the USB drive visible inside the guest OS. If you are running linux as host, you need to run VirtualBox as root otherwise the USB drives are not visible. ...

There should be a "Security" tab in the BIOS and then you should see "Virtualization" and then "Intel Virtualization Technology" that's the one you need to enable.

I see the question is adequately answered, but I would like to add that I see you're connecting to this server via ssh on port 5566. I read once on this site that communicating via SSH on unprivileged ports (being everything above 1024) is unsafe. When you are logged onto a system as a non-root user (anyone not being uid 0), you cannot create a listing ...

I finally got it working :-) My working solution involves: Parallels VM (the "router"): "host only" network, with the ip range defined by default by Parallels (I could change that in Parallels - Preferences - Network - Host Only).

there are some ways to do that... some of them need to install extension pack.

A good way to transfer a large file is to create a "Shared Folder".

It's an old question,but today I faced with the same problem with Linux Mint 18 (Sarah) Cinnemon + Oracle Virtualbox Version: 5.0.10 r104061. (Host OS is Windows 10.)

The difference is essentially the one between operating system level virtualization and hypervisor based virtualization. When you launch bash from the Windows Start menu, you get a text window with access to a full Ubuntu command line environment from where you can install any userland Ubuntu package. Unlike what you would get with a traditional VM, there ...

Just reinstall virtualbox. I faced the exact problem today. I was using virtualbox 5.0. After searching online, one possible solution I came across was to install virtualbox-dkms. So I did a "sudo apt-get install virtualbox-dkms". But this removed my current version of virtual box and installed a previous version 4.3 in its place. Henceforth, all my VMs ...

All three are tools fulfilling different uses or purposes. Deciding which is partially a preference and partially correct or adequate selection of a tool.

It does not have access to system-level information or APIs that ...

There is no need to actually have the 2TB. (Note: I only know the windows commands, you need to find the respective commands for your OS) Defrag the VB (run DEFRAG /D C: inside it) use SDELETE inside the VB (and this will not increase the physical file size - VB is clever enough to realize that a block of all zero is just that) Use VBmanage outside the Vb ...

I think you copied the two commands from a blog that automatically turned a "-" character (U+002D HYPHEN-MINUS) into a "–" character (U+2013 EN DASH). You must use "-" rather than "–".

I had the same problem on a macbook whose native resolution was 1440x900, trying all the things you did, and seeing the same results, until I found and enabled 2D and 3D hardware acceleration in my virtual machine's settings (Windows 10, in my case). Starting the VM again, I then got full native resolution in full screen mode.

Take a look at the project Bashhub. It's effectively exactly what you are asking for - a dropbox for bash history - but they have added tools to reference the history from all your machines, assuming they have access to the internet. There are valid concerns about sending your shell interactions to a third party (e.g. employer, privacy, working on sensitive ...

There should be an option to start the VMs in Headless mode. Headless mode basically runs the VM like you would normally, but doesn't show the screen or GUI of the VM. In version 5 of Virtualbox, there should be an arrow pointing down next to the button to start VMs. If you click on it, you can start the VM in headless mode. If you want to use the ...

You can (sort of) achieve two cursors by using Pluralsight. This program is free while in beta and supports creation of up to four different cursors attached to hardware mice. However, as this is an issue with such a low-level concept in operating systems, most system elements don't respond to the virtual cursors. Therefore, the usefulness of this program ...

That's because the guest isn't making contact with a DNS server that's on the VPN network.

I inserted the Windows ISO into a virtual optical drive and set the drive to the top of the boot order. This then booted the VM into the Windows installation process from where I was able to Repair Computer then Continue in Windows (or similar). The VM then booted and I was able to shut it down normally and it now boots just fine.

You should not use the Live-CD check box if it is an iso. Live-CD means that what you are reading is a real CD in a real drive, not an iso. I am not sure if that is the issue, but it's worth a try.

Looks like there's a bug in VirtualBox. I just tried what you're doing on my system and it looks like after it boots from the Optical, it will not boot from that drive again until the VM is completely halted, even if the optical drive is the only storage the VM has. I'm not sure what you're trying to do, but from the looks of it, you could always install ...

No. The VM is limited to what the host can do. If the 3rd monitor is not working for the host, the VM cannot be displayed on it either. VirtualBox has no control over the monitor from a hardware point of view, so you rely on other hardware to drive that monitor. It is possible though, to use a 2nd pc, connect the monitor to that pc, and start your VM in ...
