Home Vs. Public Networks

Post by Arontbt » 2018/08/03 19:08:07

I just created a CentOS VM on VirtualBox. I set the network as Bridged Adapter. However, I can't seem to be able to activate the enp0s3 network using the TUI network manager. I'm on a public wifi in a hospital right now (let me know if that has any implications).

My /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-enp0s3 file looks as below:

TYPE=Ethernet
PROXY_METHOD=none
BROWSER_ONLY=no
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
DEFROUTE=yes
IPV4_FAILURE_FATAL=no
IPV6INIT=yes
IPV6_DEFROUTE=yes
IPV6_FAILURE_FATAL=no
IPV6_ADDR_GEN_MODE=stable-privacy
NAME=enp0s3
UUID=71dcf5aa-ed79-4920-b11d-58d31266839d
DEVICE=enp0s3
ONBOOT=yes

I cannot ping www.google.com or any IP addresses for that matter. My /etc/resolv.conf file is:

# Generated by NetworkManager
nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 8.8.4.4

Sorry I'm a newbie but please let me know any other files you want to see and I'll be happy to to supply them.

What host are you using for your VirtualBox ?
Does your guest CentOS work with NAT rather than Bridged Adapter ?
Is your networking all good with other VB guests using same VB host ?
I'm not a complete idiot. There's still a few pieces missing.
