I have a centos 7 box install and set the network to Host-only: A private network share with the host.
I can SSH the box :: but cannot make the box access the internet to download new packages. Do I need to set some gateway address?

if you set the Networking in the VM to Host Only, network communications will only be to the Host.

if you want internet access, select NAT, which will give you Host and internet access.
