Fix: Network not working on Debian / BOSS Linux / Ubuntu Virtual Machines after being imported into VirtualBox

Before exporting Debian / BOSS Linux / Ubuntu Appliances in VirtualBox remember to delete the following file:
/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
i.e. run
rm /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
as root user on Debian / BOSS Linux
and
sudo rm /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
On Ubuntu

If you have already imported the Virtual Machine (a.k.a. appliance) then edit/etc/network/interfaces
change eth0 to eth1, i.e., eth to eth
