Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
VirtualBox Networking Settings

Hey, trying to figure this one out.

I have Windows Server 2016 TP and few Windows 7 clients (unactivated 30day trial).

I want to create a virtual network with DHCP (i.e., range: 10-20). Server should have a static IP Clients all dynamic IPs. All should also be able to connect to Internet, and be on same network to communicate with each other.

Host IP:

How should I configure VBox settings and individual guest OSs?

Thanks for the responses, I used the bridged mode with success yesterday. It got IP from router DHCP. I could even port forward to this interface and reach Apache Tomcat from the Net.

I will have to search for the Promiscuous Mode and what the settings do.
Marking as Solved for now.
