Networking on a couple of solaris boxes

Postby Picolin » 20. Oct 2016, 19:46

Hello, I have donwloaded an Oracle Solaris 11.3 VM template for virtualbox, but I am having weird issues with the internet. All I need is to be able to setup 2-3 Solaris VM's with access to the outside internet + being able to access them via ssh from the hosting computer (my local machine). However, this task is killing me and I've spent too much time on this without any advancement.

One of the weird thing is, a Solaris VM has a NAT network configuration (with 10.0.2.15 for IP) and if I open the broser on the VM (Solaris with the GUI) I can get to any website (i.e. google) but if I ping google from the command line, I do not get a response, I just get the "no answer". Is this even normal? Also, how can I configure them with DHCP (for the moment) so I can at least access them via ssh? or is it that any VM will create the same IP 10.0.2.15?

Any help will be much much appreciated!

I'll use a slightly paraphrased short description of the network modes:
scottgus1 wrote:
  • NAT and NAT Service are like the network routers you use to separate your house network from the internet. NAT gives each guest its own "router" so to speak, so each guest is separated from the others and the host. NAT service allows more than one guest to attach to the "router" and be in their own private network together. Internet connection is possible. IP is fixed, although it should be set to DHCP in the guest.
  • Bridged puts each guest on the host's physical network, and the guests looks to the physical network just like other new PCs on the network. You'll need a home/office router that acts as a DHCP server as well. Traffic between all guests and PCs and the internet is possible. IP courtesy of your DHCP server.
  • Internal is a private network between the guests connected to it. You can have more than one internal network by giving new names to your new internal networks. You assign the guests to the internal network using the network's name. Internet connection is NOT possible.
  • Host-only is an internal network that also includes the host. More than one guest can be attached to one host-only network. Internet connection is NOT possible.

For more information and details, see: Chapter 6. Virtual networking.

I really read this...and Im still having issues. Whichever I try, I cannot have the full functionality. As I mentioned on the post, I can get to the internet with the guest browser but not ping the same site. I also cannot access it via ssh from my local machine

Please post VBox.log for your VM in question.

Please zip and attach the file here, not on a third party site. See the "Upload attachment" at the bottom of the reply form. Thanks.
