Allow host and guest on same network

I don't recall how VMware does it, but it would be something like bring up an ethernet interface on the host that's attached to the virtual internal network. This would allow for where the host acts as a router/firewall to the guests.

VirtualBox already supports this although it's not clear to me in the documentation - it's Host Interface networking minus the bridge. VBoxAddIF vbox0 user
