  • Continue with the VirtualBox wizard
  • Choose Use existing hard disk and click the browse folder icon to open the Virtual Media Manager.
  • Click the icon on the toolbar of the Virtual Media Manager.

If you are using NAT network interfaces in VirtualBox, you will need to configure port forwarding in your VirtualBox environment. This will allow you to access the ClearOS web-based interface running on TCP port 81. You can find details about port forwarding in the VirtualBox User Guide

Next Steps

Once you have booted the system, you can configure and verify your network with the Network Console.
