    Facing same issue on VMware WM. How to launch browser from VM? Also, once launched what is the URL to be typed in browser? Please help. Thanking in anticipation!!

    Please remove the Virtual Machine and re-import. Do not change the Network Adapter settings — allow the default settings to remain. This should allow you to connect using the suggested IP address. In the 1.3 version of the Sandbox we refined the installation and import process and you should be able to use the default settings.

    Once you have installed the VM, open a new browser window and type in the IP address with the full in the browswer address bar.

    I had to change the IP address to an IP address in my subnet:

    I used the following commands:

    Access network settings file: # nano /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

    Restart network service :# service network restart

    Change DNS settings file: # nano /etc/resolv.conf

    A better accepted approach is to change the IP Address of the virtual switch named vSandbox to an IP in the same subnet. I changed the vSandbox IP to Subnet Mask: Gateway: none

    This forum thread explains the solution:

    let us not mix different hypervisors in the same thread….
    It works slightly different.

    Fo VirtualBox and VMWare Fusion/Player no need to change any network settings.
    It works out of box with no problems.

    For Hyper-V setup, follow mentioned post:

    Thank you!

    Please look into the eth0 config
    While correcting you probably have removed


    try it and reboot the machine of network
