Get IP ports with VirtualBox bridged adapter?


Help!
On my windows 7 x64 with VirtualBox 4.1.20 r80170 the only eth0 or eth1 ports I can get always

looks like-->>>>>>>>>

grace@userve:~$ ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 08:00:27:c7:a9:03
inet addr:10.0.2.15 Bcast:10.0.2.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
inet6 addr: fe80::a00:27ff:fec7:a903/64 Scope:Link
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:53 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:112 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:18967 (18.9 KB) TX bytes:14030 (14.0 KB)

eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 08:00:27:47:bd:06
inet6 addr: fe80::a00:27ff:fe47:bd06/64 Scope:Link <<<<<<<<<<<<--This
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:12 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:65 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:867 (867.0 B) TX bytes:14252 (14.2 KB)

lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1
RX packets:46 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:46 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
RX bytes:3376 (3.3 KB) TX bytes:3376 (3.3 KB)

I want something like

addr: 192.168.15.22

In eth1 or even in eth0 so long as I can access the guest from
the host (using PuTTY for example), or from another guest.

I can never get an IP port assigned. When the VM is starting up it always
says it is waiting for the port, then waiting as much as 60 seconds

more for port. What could cause this? I have read all of the forums and
documentation I can find. I notice LOTS of people seem to have the same
problem. On Your YouTube video you make it look so easy. What is Your magic?

I just bought

"Ubuntu 12.04 i386 LAMP/Tomcat Server Virtual Appliance"

Supposedly it is supposed to be free of the problems that myself and
LOTS of people seem to be having.

My question is what are we all doing wrong that You are not doing wrong,
or what are You doing rights that myself and LOTS of people aren't doing?

I have been working day and night for a week and a few days to try to
solve this problem with absolutely no joy, I have tried option after
option and turned all manner of things on and off and several configurations
and flavors of ubuntu server desktop, other Linux flavors. NOTHING WORKS!

I'm screeming! Help me/us PLEASE!

Thanks in advance for any help that You can kindly offer.

tare hair out - get ip ports with VirtualBox bridged adapter?

Additional information.

The Virtual Appliance that i referred to above shows ifconfig as:

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HW 08:00:27:0b:0d:5a
UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX Packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overuns:0 frame:0
TX Packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overuns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 tyqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)

lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
inet6 addr6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1
RX packets:70 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:70 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
RX bytes:5008 (5.0 KB) TX bytes 5088 (5.0 KB)

So - No joy yet.

You really should start a new thread for this, not jump on a 3 year old thread.

In your new thread, please say what the guest OS is and confirm if win7 is the host. Also say how you have configured the "Network Adapters" for the guest: attached to "NAT", "Bridged" or what.
