host only connection.

VMware offers a connection type called "host-only". This creates one network interface on each OS (one for the Host and one for the Guest) that you can assign with an IP and let the two operating systems see each other through this connection. Is it possible to do currently in VirtualBox? Should we expect that feature in one of the next versions of VirtualBox? That would be so great because someone could access services running in host from guest, and vice versa.

You underestimate the power of our Host Interface networking :) Just assign an IP address to the guest's eth0 and to vbox0 (or whatever you use) on the host.
