IP Address Ubuntu Server Not Available In VirtualBox

IP Address Ubuntu Server Not Available

IP Address Ubuntu Server Not Available In VirtualBox - When I first installed ubuntu server, I couldn't find the IP address of the server I installed in virtualbox, so I couldn't access from my computer to the server that was installed in virtualbox.

the IP address that appears when I do ifconfig is "10.0.2.15". This is not accessible. So I searched for this problem and managed to find a solution. For example when I want to see the IP address of the server it comes out like this:

server@server:~$ ifconfig
enpos3: flags=4163<UP, BROADCAST, RUNNING ,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
              inet 10.0.2.15 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 10.0.2.255
              inet6 fe80::200:27ff:fe29:f7a2 prefixlen 64 scopeid ox20<link>
              ether 08:00:27:29:f7:a2 txqueuelen 1000 (Ethernet)
              RX packets 2439 bytes 3378017 (3.3 MB)
              RX errors o dropped o overruns 0 frame o
              TX packets 710 bytes 64275 (64.2 KB) 
              Tx errors o dropped o overruns o carrier o collisions o

lo: flags=73<UP, LOOPBACK, RUNNING> mtu 65536
              inet 127.0.0.1 netmask 255.0.0.0
              inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128 scopeid Ox10<host>
              loop txqueuelen 1000 (Local Loopback)
              RX packets 200 bytes 15664 (15.6 KB)
              RX errors o dropped overruns 0 frame o
              TX packets 200 bytes 15664 (15.6 KB)
              TX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns carrier 0 collisions o

After I find out, This happens because we have not set Host Network. So to fix this, we first set the network to Host Network.

How to Get Server IP

  • Back to VirtualBox Manager
  • Click the File menu -> Host Network Manager
  • Click "Create" then a network and its IP will be created.
  • Checklist or enable DHCP Server IP Address Ubuntu Server Not Available In VirtualBox

  • Log back into the server, then type ifconfig, then the IP address will appear:
    serverserver: $ ifconfig
    enpos3: flags=4163<UP, BROADCAST, RUNNING, MULTICAST> mtu 1500
                   inet 192.168.56.101 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.56.255

  • IP that has been assigned is 192.168.56.101
  • Finished
Now the IP is there. If you can't access the IP address of your computer, chances are you haven't installed apache2. Do it using the following command:
sudo apt install apache2 openssh-server
If everything is correct, then when we access the IP it will appear like this:
