VirtualBox: Accessing guest Linux filesystem from host MacOS

Posted on

Problem :

I’m running Linux mint 15 inside a virtualBox on Mac OS (i.e. Mac host, Linux guest). I already know how to share files and access them from the Linux guest, but how can I access the filesystem on the guest linux OS from my Mac??

I’m running:

  • VirtualBox Version 4.2.18 r88780
  • Linux Mint 15 Olivia xfce
  • Mac OS X version 10.8.5

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Solution :

Not sure if this is still an open issue for you, but normally I use sshfs for Linux – osx file-sharing. sshfs for osx is a google query away.
