Virtual network access allows you to use samba or nfs from within the
virtual os.

For file transfer you may find ssh easier.

For transferring a single file you may find netcat easier still.

All of this applies to any two computers connected via a network of
course. In the virtual case, the "network" is virtual and so transfers
are significantly faster. :)
