I found quite a few tutorials describing how to set up an ubuntu webserver for local web development as a VM in Virtualbox and assigning it a static IP address. Hm, that's fine as long as you stay within your home network. this However, if working location independent, networks change and this likely causes connectivity issues.
So I figured it had to be set up on a separate network so working disconnected from an external LAN is possible.
Long story short - I want to be able to access my VM webserver without being connected to the internet/absence of an external DNS server.
Now, the server gets a second interface configured, that's the easy part. But how about the client? Disconnected from physical networks, there's no active interface... or am I wrong?
