That looks like you used default NAT networking for your guests. Change to Bridged networking and try again. Bridged networking will probably work.

Where should I change this setting?

With the VM shut down, go to the machine settings which are available in the VM window. Go to network and select Bridged mode in the settings windows to the right of the settings list.

I enabled the Inbound rule for ICMPv4 and it worked.
