Mars vs. Oracle



watchout @virtualbox nat networking is not the same as @vmware

WATCHOUT Oracle VirtualBox nat networking is not the same as VMware nat networking

VirtualBox 5.x default “built in” “hardcoded” NAT networking gives every VM the same IP which will not let VMs talk to each other and VMs will also NOT work if you netadmin or sysadmin is using the 10.0.2.x subnet on your network


This separation maximizes security since by default virtual machines cannot talk to each other.

The documentation and network naming could be clearer BUT note in virtualbox if you want VMs to be able to talk to each other you must create your own “NAT Network” instead of using “NAT” network before creating VMs and assigning networks to them

if you have #windoz 7 pro or #windoz 10 pro you no longer need to buy @vmware #player or download @oracle #virtualbox

if you have windows 7 pro (NOT HOME) or windoz 10 pro you no longer need to buy vmware player or download oracle virtualbox

  • just upgrade windows 7 pro to windows 10 pro for FREE !
  • then run M$ HYPERV for FREE !

instead of buying vmware player or downloading oracle virtualbox
