modern.IE VMs with Vagrant and Virtual Box
A simple way to start a Windows VM with IE/ Edge browser installed. Meant to be used for testing purposes. See http://blog.syntaxc4.net/post/2014/09/03/windows-boxes-for-vagrant-courtesy-of-modern-ie.aspx for more info.
How to use
Clone the repository
:; git clone https://github.com/tnguyen14/ievms.git
Install Vagrant plugins
:; vagrant plugin install vagrant-vbguest
Start the VMs
You can start any version of IE you'd like with just a simple command:
:; vagrant up ie6-xp :; vagrant up ie8-xp :; vagrant up ie7-vista :; vagrant up ie8-win7 :; vagrant up ie9-win7 :; vagrant up ie10-win7 :; vagrant up ie11-win7 :; vagrant up ie10-win8 :; vagrant up ie11-win81 :; vagrant up msedge-win10
You might see many SSH authentication failure warnings, and eventually timed out. This is expected. The Windows VM with IE should already been opened via a GUI with Virtualbox.
You can access the host's network from inside the VM by going to http://192.168.33.1
