I am using Linux Mint 18 as a host and with Qemu i' running an Androidx86 guest. It works perfectly fine for normal use but there is one thing I would like to be able to do.
I need to execute a command on the host(Linux Mint) when something happens on the Androidx86 guest. I am able to achieve this by creating a ssh connection with the host but this does only work when the host and guest have an internet connection. As soon as I disable wifi/ethernet it stops working.
So what I planned to do was something like 'ssh localhost' which of course doesn't work from inside the guest. Is there a way to avoid needing an active internet connection to execute the command ?
Or is there even a better way to talk with the host from within the guest ?
