I am running Fedora from VirtualBox with Windows XP as the OS host. How do I mount the selected shared folder in Linux?
Rather old but just in case:
mount.vboxsf -w nameofsharedfolderinvbox /destination/path/on/linux
Also to add it to fstab:
nameofsharedfolderinvbox /destination/path/on/linux vboxsf defaults 0 0
Obvious question, does /home/user/vsharebox exist?
Are the Guest Additions installed in your Fedora VM and are they up to date with the running kernel?
Not sure what the command is exaclty for fedora, but here are a couple of examples:
sudo smbmount \\\\192.168.1.10\\c\$ /mnt/localFolder/ -o username=administrator mount -t cifs \\\\WindowsHostName\\utility /mnt/localfolder -o username=administrator
And you might need a package like smbfs or samba-client.
I mounted it on a Debian distro in VirtualBox and it worked without a problem:
sh /cdrom/VBoxLinuxAdditions.run mount -t vboxsf
for fedora 10 [i modified the debian command posted by cmserv, above]: sudo sh /media/VBOXADDITIONS_2.2.2_46594/VBoxLinuxAdditions-x86.run vfs-module
