My setup is like this:
Host: Windows 8 with Virtualbox VM: Ubuntu 14.04 with 2 network adapters, eth0 a Host-only Adapter and eth1 a bridged adapter connected to my Wireless.
From my host to my VM I can ping the IPv4 address and the IPv6 link scope address of the eth1 interface. I can also ping the host from my VM .
In addition, I assigned a static IPv6 global scope address to the vm using "sudo ifconfig eth1 inet6 add aaaa::1".
I can't ping that address from my host. In other words, this works: "ping -6 fe80::a00:27ff:fe57:a9b9" (which is the link local scope address) but this doesn't: "ping -6 aaaa::1"
Any advice on how to resolve this?
Edit: Virtualbox has this to say: "On Linux hosts, functionality is limited when using wireless interfaces for bridged networking. Currently, VirtualBox supports only IPv4 over wireless. For other protocols such as IPv6 and IPX, you must choose a wired interface."
Atm my host has only a wireless connection and it is to this connection my eth1 bridged adapter is set. Is this perhaps the problem?
