Re: VirtualBox, Linux, ethernet question...

Errrr.... At the risk of being shot I'll say that there a lot of smart and easy thing on linux compare to windows, installing virtualbox and running and general gui config are not one of them!

Thanks also, I may not be a wizz kid but I do go on google (and I wouldn't be there if I found the answers)... anyway all of this to realise that I did configure everything from the GUI already (I think). I prefer GUI than command line ;-)

So now I used host -only and I used bridge... both work, (I realised  eth0 was disabled) - with vboxnet0 and eth1 respectively I can communicate back to the host but not into the virtualbox Suse.... Any hint sir? (I've tried ssh)

Command line permits you to control *every* aspect of your operating
system faster than you could searching, installing and learning to use
such buggy tools you find for Windows.

Learn to use the "man" command to understand how to use commands.

man VBoxManage

You'll discover that you must specify the virtual machine NAME.  If
you called your virtual machine "Suse" or "Suse 10" or whatever, you
have to use that name.

Type "ifconfig" command to discover the name of the ethernet interface
you are using.  Please look to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org), in
the Fedora wiki (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_Project_Wiki)
or simply to Google for terms or concepts you don't know or
