Re: VirtualBox, Linux, ethernet question...



Ok, here is when Linux loose me! NEver had to comand line anything on Windows so thanks for hinting me toward the solution.

I've tried the command and got

[root desktop eclipse]# VBoxManage modifyvm "desktop.lan" --bridgeadapter1 eth0
VirtualBox Command Line Management Interface Version 2.2.4
(C) 2005-2009 Sun Microsystems, Inc.
All rights reserved.

ERROR: Could not find a registered machine named 'desktop.lan'
Details: code VBOX_E_OBJECT_NOT_FOUND (0x80bb0001), component VirtualBox, interface IVirtualBox, callee nsISupports
Context: "FindMachine(Bstr(a->argv[0]), machine.asOutParam())" at line 853 of file VBoxManageModifyVM.cpp

desktop.lan is what I get when I type hostname....

If I understood your issue, you should not try to get an ip address
within the guest machine until the host one is configured well.  I
suggest you to configure the host machine using a command like this:

VBoxManage modifyvm "Name of your Machine" --bridgeadapter1 eth0

where eth0 is the host interface you are using.  You also can manage
the network configuration using the GUI shipped with the package.  Let
me point you to the official user manual instructions:
