Enable DHCP with internal networking => Fixed in SVN

There should be an option to enable DHCP when using internal networking (to allow guests in the same internal network to get IPs automatically thus minimizing required administration).

This could also be achieved if there were an option to allow more than one VMs to reside in the same NAT (as VMWare does).

Summary: Enable DHCP with internal networkingEnable DHCP with internal networking => Fixed in SVN

Starting with the next release it will be possible to start an DHCP server for an internal network. So far this has to be done with VBoxManage, in later VBox releases we will add GUI support.

With version 2.2.0 this is no longer relevant as the same functionality is achieved with host-only network mode (though I might need to add two network interfaces- one to access host and other vms [host-only], other to access the internet [NAT])
