Win7 - VirtualBox - CentOS6

VB Network settings (info from VB support forum):
2 separate adapters: 1 - Host-only Adapter (to connect CentOS on VB to Win7) and 2 - NAT (to enable Internet access for CentOS).


"With host only networking virtual machines can talk to each other and the host as if they were connected through a physical ehternet switch. Similarly, as with internal networking however, a physical networking interface need not be present, and the virtual machines cannot talk to the world outside the host since they are not connected to a physical networking interface."


"A virtual machine with NAT enabled acts much like a real computer that connects to the Internet through a router. The “router”, in this case, is the VirtualBox networking engine, which maps traffic from and to the virtual machine transparently. The disadvantage of NAT mode is that, much like a private network behind a router, the virtual machine is invisible and unreachable from the outside internet; you cannot run a server this way unless you set up port forwarding."

I looked at some tutorials, but I am stil wondering about few things:

1) Do I need to change the hostname in Linux and assign it a FDQ name etc
2) What configuration changes should I make to /etc/httpd/confg/httpd.confg and /etc/sysconfig/network

I am gonna make MySQL and Apache start after every boot, but then

3) What address am I gonna use in, lets say IE browser on Win to access Apache on Virtual Box
4) How is it gonna work with SHH (what address, do I need ports etc)

5) What are the other settings involved.

There is some info about it on the net, but it's kind of hard to get it all together.
Thank you.
