Accessing TeraStation from Virtualbox VM (running W10)
« on: December 29, 2017, 04:27:11 am »
I am trying to use my TeraStation LS 441 from a VM, but the Navigator does not find it. Also accessing the drive using its IP does not seem to work.
Presumable the VM's network-settings need to be adjusted - but I am surprised this should be neccessary, because I can access all other LAN-devices from inside the VM as well as the web.

I have set up two adapers in the VM's config: NAT and a "VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter".

Does the VM have an IP address in the same subnet as the NAS? Can you ping the NAS from the VM?

Thanks for your quick reply! I can ping the NAS. VM's IP is 10.0.2.15, NAS is 192.168.178.71 and both use subnetmask 255.255.255.0, so if I understood corrrectly they're not on the same subnet. (I'm also accessing the company's network via VPN, I guess that is the reason for the VM'sIP)

The file sharing protocol SMB is not routable, so both the client and the NAS must be on the same subnet to work correctly.
