Networking issue with Windows 10 Host

June 18, 2018 at 05:23:21
Specs: Windows 7

I am sure this will have been posted elsewhere but I've checked online and can't find anything that matches what I need.I recently had to reinstall Windows 10 1709 (Fall Creators Update), which meant reinstalling all of my software including Virtualbox. I downloaded Virtualbox 5.2.0 from the website and installed it along with the extension pack.Before reinstalling Windows, I was able to run a VM (on VB 5.1.3) with Ubuntu server 16.04 as a web server, with network connectivity via a bridged connection. Since reinstalling and updating to 5.2.0, I am not able to. Using a host-only connection, I am able to get a connection to the VM, but it can not connect out (so CURL and other commands won't work). If I use a bridged connection, it times out when raising the networking interfaces and again won't connect out. I have tried to create a new VM with Ubuntu Desktop 16.04 and that too won't connect out, even with a bridged connection.

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

It sounds like a firewall issue, bring up Windows Firewall and look to make sure that the VM is listed as an open port with rights in and out. See if you can add it or adjust its rights.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

In the Ethernet properties (Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Network Connections) is the Virtualbox Network Driver present and checked?
You can also check in the "Virtual Network Editor" application
