Ticket #97 (closed enhancement: duplicate)

When it comes to virtualising, VirtualBox is the smallest, fastest, best performing software available I have encountered. There is just one problem, the network setup needs work. Whenever I run a virtual machine, I need to access the guest and/or other virtual machines and/or other computers on the local network or internet. I also need to access the virtual machine from the guest or other computers on the network. This can be done by just updating the IP settings on the virtual machine using static IP settings or dynamic (DHCP). My suggestion is to enable one using the VirtualBox interface, to select the guest network card (like Microsoft Virtual PC/Server). You then boot up the virtual machine and set the IP settings static or dynamic. This is the basic setup that I always use and I am sure others also. Currently this is not possible through the interface, and without network connectivity, this excellent software product is useless, because one needs network connectivity 99% of the time when testing. Currently I cannot use it, but I would like to. Thanks.
