- I created a new network from the virtual server to the default network on Ubuntu called WORKGROUP. Having done that I started to see the virtual machine on the host and vice versa.
- Next I set up a file share on the folders I wanted to share on my Linux box and all was well.
Sharing files between a VirtualBox WinXP and the Ubuntu 8 host
Its been an Odyssey moving from Windows to Linux, each day a new lesson, a new surprise and a new feature added to my laptop. Well I had successfully installed VirtualBox achieved a successful virtualization, installed Windows XP successfully, all was well. As usual though you always want more, I mean, it really makes no sense if the virtual machine cannot share files with the host machine or networked machines. Thus next task was to try to share the files - a daunting task. I went with what I knew and added the virtual machine to the network. That worked but, while I could see the virtual machine on the network I could not get into the shared folder. Oh Gosh I thought another hurdle. I tried to share the Ubuntu folders but, I kept getting alerts saying I needed permissions. These steps sorted the problem.
