I am using Fedora 16 on VirtualBox. The host machine has ethernet interface of eth6, and on Fedora it is p2p1. Now, internet is connected and everything is fine. But when I install a software that asks for ethernet interfaces, NOTHING showed up as a choice (where as p2p1 or ethX should show). I did ifconfig and p2p1 is shown along with lo, so everything is fine as well (remember, internet IS connected). But I did notice that in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts, ifcfg-p2p1 is missing. Now, I suspect that the lack of selection for ethernet interfaces is due to the lack of ifcfg-p2p1. What can I do to have this file in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts ?
NOTE: I've set VirtualBox network settings for Fedora to Bridged Adapter instead of the default NAT.
