[SOLVED] VBox: Access shared folders from Windows Server 2008 Guest

Hi,
I have installed virtualbox v4.2.4 on Arch and I launch a WIndows Server 2008 guest. I want to access shared folder from guest. How to do it?

Hi,
I have done this but it does not work.

My network is configured as a NAT in virutalbox.
Also from WIndows server 2008 guest I do:

net use z:\\vboxsvr\mySharedFolder

Do I have to install additional software in host or do I have to configure something in Windows server 2008 guest?

Do you have guest additions installed ?
You need it on both the guest and host. It is in official repos.
