I have tested this problems in 3 diferent´s computers (2 with windows 10 a 1
one with windows 8.1 and the result was the same). I installed virtualbox
and guest additions and make a virtual machine with windows XP. Inside the
guest machine, i ping to the host computer and i cannot find the host (i
find all others computers in network and i tested to ping from another
computer´s to this host machine and it find it). I tried to find a solution
in the forums with no sucess and make many others diferent´s test to see if
i can a solution. And, indeed, i find a solution but, to me, it seems like a
bug... i start the virtualbox and the guest machine (windows xp) and then,
go to the ethernet configuration of the host machine (where is the IP adress
 ...) and change something in there (for example, "Clients for Microsoft
Network" and put it back again) and click in OK. when i go to the guest
machine and ping to the host IT WORK´S.    
Can you see this situation ?

Best Regard´s,
 Luis Ventura
