I have a web server running on Oracle Linux 6.4 on VirtualBox. It has an eth1 address of 10.0.2.15. I want to be able to run a web server from this virtual machine, but I can’t access the virtual machine from my host. The guest OS also can’t reach the Internet; I can’t ping Google.

Currently, the network adapter in virtual machine settings is configured as NAT. Here’s the file at /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1:

DEVICE=eth1
TYPE=Ethernet
#UUID=47fc2dd9-bca4-4912-95b5-7939b3e0ebf5
ONBOOT=yes
NM_CONTROLLED=no
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
HWADDR=08:00:27:06:9c:d5
DEFROUTE=yes
PEERDNS=yes
PEERROUTES=yes
IPV4_FAILURE_FATAL=yes
IPV6INIT=no
NAME="System eth1"
LAST_CONNECT=1392385849

How do I need to configure my networking, both in the virtual machine settings and on the guest OS?

EDIT

ifconfig:

  • Sorry to hear about this. Can you please edit the question to add more details. Such as what is the output of ifconfig and perhaps the contents of /etc/network/interfaces? Also perhaps some details on your networking setup. Are you connected to a router? If so how? and what make/model? – JakeGould Oct 13 '15 at 15:34
  • @JakeGould added the output of ifconfig. There is no /etc/network/interfaces file, and I don't know the networking setup, other than I'm running a local VM in virtual box and I'm behind a proxy. – ewok Oct 13 '15 at 16:08
  • If you are behind a proxy then that's probably your problem. – qasdfdsaq Oct 15 '15 at 11:21
