I'm using VirtualBox trying to set up Windows as my dev environment, but an Ubuntu VM as my "virtual server".
So, Windows 7 is my host OS on my laptop. My guest OS is Ubuntu, which will run my LAMP setup. I take my laptop to friends places and my girlfriends place. Sometimes I use my ethernet adapter, sometimes the wireless - so I use different networks and different adapters and am trying to keep my configuration independant if this is possible.
I'd like the guest to have a static IP so I can set my hosts file in Windows to point to my Ubuntu "virtual server".
How should I do this?
I have managed to set up a static IP address in Ubuntu using NAT in VirtualBox, but of course I can't access anything from Windows - I need to be able to visit 10.0.2.15 in my broswer, but the virtual machine's hidden behind NAT ...
Any ideas? Can you point me in the right direction on how this should be configured?
Thanks in advance!
