I have installed a VirtualBox with an Ubuntu Server (16.04)on my Ubuntu 16.04 laptop.

I want to create a virtual network. By reading some post on the web, it seems pretty simple but ...

So, I have configured like that:

  • In VirtualBox settings > network: NAT is empty, and in Host Only, I have vboxnet0 with as IP, as mask and DHCP empty

  • I setup the virtual server, with card 1 = NAT and Private Host with name vboxnet0 and Authorize all.
    Checkbox cable plugged is tick on.

  • File /etc/network/interface contain this informations:

    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback

    auto enp0s3
    iface enp0s3 inet static

I try to ping host and guest but nothing is working. I miss something but what ?

Thanks for your help

You need to set your network adapter to bridged and for Name: choose your host NIC - your wireless or LAN connection adapter from laptop.

Mine is Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1000

Instead of that choose yours.

and press the MAC Adress refresh button (on the right the blue one with arrows) a few times![enter image description here
