    Hi all,

    VirtualBox fans rejoice!

    I've written another VirtualBox tutorial. This time, it's an extensive guide about networking options and sharing in VirtualBox, covering topics like NAT, Bridged Adapter, Host-only Adapter, sharing via network, sharing via Shared Folders, and more, in both Windows and Linux, host and guest.

    I hope you will enjoy it.

    Cheers,

    Nice articles on VirtualBox. :thumb: It's really quite a nice piece of kit, especially considering the price...

    Awhile ago I wanted to run win in win.
    At their forum, gave me a bunch of crap about windows doesn't allow double
    install on single machine and stopped helping me.
    I haven't tried VB since.

    If you had a tutorial on command line configuration, like setting the bios
    emulator and the like, that would be cool.

    I am not a fan of big feet. :thumbd:

    erm what do you mean by win in win?

    you can install virtualbox on windows and then install windows as a guest or is that not what you mean?

    Most likely, this is due to the terms of Windows EULA, not from any technical problems.

    Indeed. Microsoft wants you to pay for another license to use in the same computer you have a license for already.

    Yes. And the mod was running around like a chicken with his head cut off.
    I got the brush off and he never looked back.
    To him commandline configurations were obvious.
    To me it was a dark cave full of scary things. There is no undo button in command line. :D

    There are a lot of command line configurations not part of the default.
    BIOS emulation is just one group, which is required for Windows to think it is on the same hardware and register successfully.
