I am having trouble accessing the various VPS websites from the guest? Considering that is on my local machine so there are no different public/internet domains connected to it.

Virtualbox container with Minimal Alma9 on my laptop.

Virtualbox Adapter 1 – NAT - to connect the guest to the internet
Virtualbox Adapter 2 – Guest-only – To connect to the host from guest
Virtualbox Adapter 3 – Bridged – tried with and without it.

This is what I have done:

  • Connected to host from guest pc via SSH and installed virtualmin.

  • During installation I got the fully qaulified hostname error.

  • Typed something like and progressed the installation. - that added a new line with the above domain to /var/hosts

Finally created virtual Server but cannot access it from the guest browser?

  • If I go to I see an empty page “index of”.

Any suggestions on how to set it up / access multiple website locally from the guest?
