Making a Virtualbox Guest OS Accessible Over LAN

Case: When pinged from another PC on the LAN, the guest OS replies: “icmp_seq=XX Packet filtered” which is an error. Host and guest are both Solus Linux 4.1.

Solution

Bridge the guest system’s network adapter to the host’s:

  1. Open Virtualbox
  2. Settings for the guest OS
  3. Network section
  4. set Attached to: to be Bridged Adapter
    * The target adapter should be the one connected to the LAN, obviously.

Now the IP of the host corresponds to both systems – guest and host.
