Endian Firewall in VirtualBox VM unreachable


CentOS host with VirtualBox.
Virtual Machine "Endian" with bridge host adapter to my physical eth1 interface.

First of all : does Endian have a GUI during install ? Because I had a text-based installation where I had to chose my language and then type the IP-address of the green interface. That's all I was prompted for...

After a reboot I should be able to login to the webinterface @ the IP-address I gave the green interface (192.168.3.1), but when I ping this IP-address the host is unreachable.

When I login to the shell on my Endian Virtual Machine (I have the options 1)shell / 2)Factory Defaults / 3)Reboot) with the default root - endian credentials, and I execute the ifconfig-command I see that the br0-interface has the IP-address of the green interface (192.168.3.1).


My Endian virtual machine is like a physical server on my network (hence the bridge adapter).

The physical NIC is connected to a router.
My host OS (CentOS) received the IP-address 192.168.3.179 via DHCP.
My guest OS (Endian) has the IP 192.168.3.1 manually set.

I try to enter the webinterface from my Acer laptop (192.168.3.169) but am unsuccessful. Also a ping says 'host unreachable'.

The firewall on my host (CentOS) is disabled for the moment.

Why can't I talk to my virtual machine from another client on my network ??

For those experiencing the same issue with Endian in a virtual machine :

it might well be that the physical interface you assigned to the green interface of your Endian VM, is not actually the interface Endian will use to assign its bridge to.

In my case, it was the other physical interface (which I assigned the Red Network to) that was used.

There's no way of changing this, just try and error to find the correct interface Endian signed the green zone to.

Problem solved by assigning different physical interfaces to my virtual interfaces.
