I just downloaded and successfully installed this oracle linux/database pre-built virtual machine.
I was successfully able to login as oracle/oracle user and view the desktop with the red-colored wall paper.
I opened the terminal and did "ifconfig -a" and noticed my IP address is 10.0.2.15, however if I try to access it from my host machine (something like http://10.0.2.15:8080 for a tomcat server) I am unsuccessful.
I tried to modify the network settings in Virtual Box from NAT to Bridged, hoping that it would give me some kind of a DHCP IP address (like one of those 192.168.x.x). However, after rebooting into the pre-built virtual machine and rerunning "ifconfig" the 10.0.2.15 IP address disappeared but was not replaced with a DCHP IP address.
How do I get my host operating system (Yosemite) to connect to a server running on my pre-built oracle virtual machine? What do I need to change in Virtual Box's settings?
I have Virtual Box 5.x so it is one of the more recent versions.
