Welcome to FreeSoftwareServers Confluence Wiki

  1. Install Guest Additions on HOST machine >> VirtualBox Downloads
  2. Install Guest Additions inside GUESTGuest-GuestAdditions
  3. Add Shared Folder via Vbox GUI (as you can see I have added Downloads)


4. Turn on Vbox and open Terminal

Create mount point & mount

sudo mkdir ~/SharedDL && sudo mount -t vboxsf Downloads ~/SharedDL

sudo mkdir [mountpoint] && sudo mount -t vboxsf [Nameof_Shared_Folder] [mountpoint]  

5. Make Permanent

sudo nano /etc/rc.local && sudo chmod +x /etc/rc.local
# By default this script does nothing.
mount.vboxsf Downloads /home/username/ShareDL vboxsf

exit 0
