I'm not so familiar with virtualization. I could use it without problems on windows 7/8. Recently i want to use VirtualBox on my new Windows 10 laptop to try out a server: Kaa. They offer a sandbox environment. So i started with it.
I have managed to install Ubuntu 14.04 (the host of the server) as guest OS on my VM. But i am not able to connect with it from my host laptop. I know from the past that you have to set up a bridged adapter, that allows the VM to be connected to the internet AND being communicated from host. (well i hope so).
Problem: the host cannot communicate to VM. And VM cannot communicate to host either !
So far i have already visited the following questions
- let virtualbox guest running window access the internet
- access apache on virtualbox guest from host
- bridged networking not working in virtualbox under win10
- connect to host from virtualbox
So far, they all recommend to use either "bridged networking" or "host only". But both doesn't provide result. The problem still persists.
Here below are two images, one showing the network config and other one showing the topology of my laptop
The VirtualBox version is here below
(that means the latest one) The IP of the host and VM is the following
PS C:\Users\foo> ipconfig Windows IP Configuration Ethernet adapter Ethernet: Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : Wireless LAN adapter Local Area Connection* 2: Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : Ethernet adapter VirtualBox Host-Only Network: Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::1490:45a1:b9cd:3790%3 IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.56.1 Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : Wireless LAN adapter Wi-Fi: Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::5cef:ef4f:6ab4:37a4%7 IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.42 Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1
And the eth0 interface of my VM
email@example.com:/$ ifconfig eth0 | grep addr eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 08:00:27:a0:10:f0 inet addr:192.168.0.112 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::a00:27ff:fea0:10f0/64 Scope:Link
PING test from the host to VM :

Although it's worth to mention that the VM is in a different subnet. Is that the expected behavior of "bridged adapter" ?
I suspect that the problem doesn't lie at the VM but at how the network is set up ? I do have networking knowledge, but only basic. And since i don't understand how the virtual adapter works, i don't see directly a clue where the problem is.
Or is the problem at Windows 10 itself ?
Maybe someone can point me to the problem and provide a solution ? That would be appreciated.
