I have a “Crunchbang 10“ (Statler) installed as the host, and Arch linux installed in Virtualbox 4.0.6. My goal is to be able to ssh into the the guest from the host.
I tried to follow this post http://muffinresearch.co.uk/archives...-linux-guests/
but it is somewhat sketchy.
My questions are as follows:
What changes, if any, are to made to the host’s network configuration, in this case /etc/network/interfaces? What verbiage is to be used?
What changes are to be made to the guest’s network interface, in this case /etc/rc.conf? What verbiage is to be used?
Does one access the host from the guest, and if so, how, host name and ip address of the host?
If one wishes to access the guest from the host, how does one do that?
Is it ssh guest hostname + ip address of the guest?
In short, can someone explain what the author of the post was trying to communicate? I Googled many posts over a period of hours, but they are all incomplete, written for very advanced users and pale besides something like the Arch Linux beginner’s guide, pindarsign.de and most of the Ubuntu’s documentation, hence my problem. Arch Linux on an encrypted LVM jfs is my main system, so respondents, know that your time will not be wasted.
Clarification would be greatly appreciated
