I have a Windows 10 host with VirtualBox (5.0.10) Arch Linux guest.

Host's IP: 192.168.1.102. Guest's IP when in Bridged mode: 192.168.1.14. I also have another host (with a simple web server on port 80) in this network, let's call it X. It's IP: 192.168.1.10.

When I configure guest's network adapter as NAT, I can access both host and X. However, when I switch to Bridged mode, I can ping host from guest and vice-versa, but I cannot access X from the guest.

I imagined that when I set it to Bridged mode, it would behave as if it were just another machine on the network, with "equal rights" with another machine, such as X. However, this does not seem so.

What am I missing? What information can I add (I don't even know how to start analyzing the problem)?

UPDATE

I can ping and access X on port 80 with no problems from the host.

        TX packets 7  bytes 578 (578.0 B)

I skipped the loopback device in both cases. I guess it's enp0s3 that's in question here - we can the IP change there - but I have honestly no idea what enp0s8 might be, I'm quite sure I never configured it manually. When I was setting up DHCP service on guest, only enp0s3 was there. So it must have been added when I started changing between NAT and Bridged? Would it make sense? In the beginning, it was set to NAT.

  • Can you please give the output of ifconfig if the guest is 'nix based, or ipconfig if it's Windows?

  • And please add that for both Bridged and NAT situations

  • Also, can your host ping X?

If this output of ifconfig is the one of the guest, you obviously havn't configured enp0s3 for IP4 while in bridged mode but you have while in NAT mode. Try changing that.

Be blessed!
