developer studio connect to server on vbox


I have RHEL 7.1 installed as a guest on virtualbox on my windows laptop.  I've installed the jboss EAP 6.4.0 server into this environment.

I have installed JBoss developer studio 7.1.1 on my windows 8.1 laptop.  I would like to connect to the EAP server on vbox from developer studio but have no idea how to go about doing this.

I'm aware that developer studio ships with an EAP which can be used on a laptop but it is 6.2.0 and this version is not new enough for some of the other jboss products that I'd like to investigate.

Can anyone outline the steps I should take to establish a working connection from the jboss developer studio on my laptop to the EAP server running on vbox also on my laptop.

There is no support in jboss studio to connect Oracle xVM VirtualBox or vbox (what is vbox?)

You just need to put virtualbox virtual machine on bridged network and assign it connectable IP and connect it as a normal computer.

vbox was my lazy way of writing virtualbox.

Regarding your second line, that is what I have started to do.

In vbox manager I have clicked on the settings for the installed RHEL VM I have added another adapter (bridged) as per screenshot below in addition to the NAT created when I created the VM.

add adapter on VM
However I seem to be stuck in that in section 6.5 of the  user guide it states the following:

To enable bridged networking, all you need to do is to open the Settings dialog of a virtual
machine, go to the “Network” page and select “Bridged network” in the drop down list for the
“Attached to” field. Finally, select desired host interface from the list at the bottom of the page,
which contains the physical network interfaces of your systems. On a typical MacBook, for
example, this will allow you to select between “en1: AirPort” (which is the wireless interface)
and “en0: Ethernet”, which represents the interface with a network cable.

However I can't see where I can choose the physical network interface from the screenshot? Any ideas about what I should now?
that wireless-ac is the adapter. it must be one you connect to the network, then check IP from inside the VM and connect jboss studio to it.
Other way is to use host-only network (same way - go check ip and connect)

d'oh! it was wasn't it!

When you say it must be one you connect to the network? How can I check that the adapter is connected to the network?

I take it there is no network configuration to do from inside of linux?  I just take the ethernet ip address from the command 'ip addr show' and use this.

No need for port forwarding either?

Well, I didn't work for now, I've got the error message
when I start the VM, vbox has a new defect raised against this and at the moment the solution is to re-install virtualbox, so I'm turning in for the night and I'll start again tomorrow.

At least you should be able to see if you are connected to wireless or wired network in Windows.
