Hi there,

How do other host to guest services perform? For example, how does the Samba server on the guest do? Can you access a Samba share on the guest from the host?

Cannot access anything to guest from host except ping command. But when I use other machine in network (IP, from it I can ssh to the host and anything too. So my supposition is: you cannot access the guess from host on same machine. Is it right ?

I can't say with any confidence using Windows as the host, but certainly with a Linux host when the setup is correct you can.

Out of curiosity what does your routing table look like on the host?
