VirtualBox ping issue
Running Fedora 10, I installed CentOS 5 in Virtualbox, but I can't ping the Virtual Machine...
From within CentOS, I can ping my laptop [known as the host?] but from the laptop I can't ping the CentOS Virtual Machine. I tried turning off the firewall on both too... CentOS was able to access the internet through my laptop right away without any configurations too.
Unless someone has an idea to resolve the above, I am also wondering about something else VirtualBox-related:
To see if it was possible to get around the above issue, I was going to install another CentOS virtual machine to see if I can get them to communicate both ways [if at all], but to do so, I think I have to install CentOS AGAIN on another allocated amount of hard disk space. This will take some time, so I was wondering if anyone knew if it was possible to just create a quick duplicate of the previous installation, if you wanted 2 different virtual installations of the same OS.
Thanks for any ideas.
I'm heading towards a career in Linux and I'm looking to learn as much as possible, so your answers to my questions are appreciated.
