shared folder in XP guest on Feisty

Discussions about using Windows guests in VirtualBox.

Postby Longfield » 3. Jul 2007, 17:08

I am experiencing the exact same issue.

I have installed virtualbox 1.4.0 for Ubuntu Feisty from the apt repository (in case it makes a difference as previously evoked). This is my very first virtualbox install, and the Windows XP virtual machine was setup with this install (and works nicely, I'm very impressed).

Has anyone figured out what is wrong here ?

I, thought I had the same problem. But
net use X: \\vboxsvr\share

helps.

1.) The device letter seems to be case sensitive.
2.) \\vboxsvr, not \\vboxsrv

I've go the same setup and symptoms : cannot share drive and network halfway working.

My guest is assigned 10.0.2.15/255.255.255.0 with 10.0.2.2 as gateway.
I can ping 10.0.2.2 but cannot ping www.google.com or www.yahoo.com.

In ping's reply, I can see www.google.com translated to www.1.google.com [217.146.186.51] so I guess DNS is somehow running.
I believe I turned my firewall off (but you never know).

IE is working ok but "net use F: \\vboxsvr\share" still answer Error 53.

My guess I should solve networking problem first but how ?
Any hint ?

WinXP shared folder

Postby Harald Lukas » 11. Aug 2007, 15:47

Hi!

I'm using XP on Apple OS-X 10.4.10 without any problems.
I did not use the command-line.
Go to the system-folder "network-connections" (there are several ways to do that), in German "Netzwerkverbindungen". Right-click it. In the opening window, you will find "connect network-drive" ("Netzlaufwerk verbinden"). Click!
In the opening window you choose a drive-letter ("Laufwerksbuchstabe") and search for your shared folder (which must already exist!). Click!

Good luck!

Before setting your network drive, could you ping www.google.com ?
Which reply did you then get ?

For me, this inability to ping www.google.com from cmd line interface and still to be able to surf with IE or firefox is very strange.

Anyway, I tried your process :
I could find Connect to network drive tab, I choose a letter for the drive but couldn't find shared drive in Find folder tab.

Which folder name did you type ?

Using \\vboxsvr\share doesn't work for me.

I will open a new thread as I still can't share any folder between host and guest.

One thing I didn't mention is I upgraded from 1.3.7 to 1.4.0 without re-installing XP (new version of VirtualBox could find previous virtual hard drive).

I will double documentation before posting anew.
