Unhappy Need to ping Guest hostonly adapter from Host


Hi

A picture speaks a 1000 words so here is my picture of what I am trying to achieve, Is it possible ? See attached picture.



I am able to ping my Guest's Hostonly adapter IP address when my host Ubuntu does not have a IP to it, however when I try to give it an IP using DHCP I lose the ability to ping my VirtualBox guest's hostonly IP address.

When host ubuntu does not have IP
bala@bala-laptop:~$ ifconfig eth0
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:12:de:cd:b0:af
inet6 addr: fe80::bbbb:aaaa:fe18:a94f/64 Scope:Link

When host ubuntu does have IP

Is there any way by which I can get an IP to my host interface and still be able to ping my Guest OS's host only interface?

I have shown my problem in video format for better understanding. I don't see a way to attach an AVI file so giving the link here. I hope it does not violate the forum rules, if it does let me know I will remove it immediately.

Disabled Firestarter on base OS it fixed the issue. However I don't want my firewall to be completely down, I tried adding 192.168.56.0/24 to the allowed list. Still I am unable to ping. Any pointers as to what I should do ?
