I am already a little bit familiar with Linux distros like Debian or Ubuntu (yeah, very similar) but I wanted to try Red Hat based - CentOS 6.2 . I have installed it on my Windows 7 host in virtualBox and tried to play with it a little.
I have same across a small problem, namely : the default
eth0 interface is down by default. I use the option with NAT ( the virtual machine is 'behind' the host ). Even if I bring the interface up with
ifconfig eth0 up it does not work right away. I get this after bringing the interface up:
What should be done more to configure the network on CentOS machine?
P.S. Sorry for screenshot but I do not know how to get the text out of the VirtualBox.
