    Hi, Venkataramana,

    There are a few things to check:

    1. Can you ping the host-only ip? Usually it is something like
    2. Can you login to sandbox and check if http is running by ‘ps -ef| grep httpd’?
    3. If you can ping this ip, can you check or upload /var/log/startup_script.log?



    Hi Larry,

    Thanks for immediate response. I found out the issue is. The actual IPAddress is But when it started the Sandbox it is showing me But after I ran the ifconfig it is showing me the ip as for eth0.

    Hi, Venkat

    This is possible a bug if the ip shows different one from ifconfig output. Did you restart network or if network service was down and restarted?
