How to enable communication between host and guest OS on VM

Hello everyone

I have installed Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit server on a virtual machine for learning and testing purposes such as networking, configurations and many more.

How can i enable my host OS Linux Mint communicate with the guest, Ubuntu 14.04 server on a VM. i want to run some networking commands such as ping, ssh, rsync, scp and many others between the host and guest OS.

What configurations do i have to do so that this works?

For that you have to setup Bridge connection while creating the virtual machine

once look at the below link for getting an idea about the type of connections
