VirtualBox: Network Sharing

Posted on


I’m trying to set up normal network sharing between my virtualbox host and guest. When I use NAT networking, I can get internet on my guest, but I heard network sharing is not possible. I heard to do network sharing you need to use a Host-Only network and Bridged Network, but I when I switch to Host-Only I have no more internet access, and I heard Bridged networks sometimes cause issues with your router. Is there a way to get the best of both worlds, internet access and network sharing?


I’m using this trick in my environment. Your VirtualBox Guest will uses two interfaces . One interface becomes NAT and the other one becomes Host-Only. Don’t forget to add default route to NAT interface.
