VirtualBox Virtual Network Editor?


I am wondering if VirtualBox has a virtual network editor capability.  So that I can setup one device that is NAT'd to our internal LAN and then acts as a router to route between this LAN and virtual network that I will setup and connect other Virtualbox based VMs to.

IE, I want all but one of the VMs to reside on the Virtual network, while the one VM acts as a router between the two.  I hope this makes sense.  Conceptually simple enough, but I am having a hard time finding info on trying to do specifically this.

Thanks for your help.

I never saw a Network Editor for Virtual Network Editor for Virtual Box. Free is what you get . I use VMware Workstation for this and other reasons.

Hi CnicNV,

you can have the first VM set up with two virtual NICs with one connected to the NAT network and one to private network and have the remaining VMs set with private network and inside the OS of the other VMs set the first VM as the gateway/router....

That should do the trick for you.

here is a step by step guide that may help you.

Hey John, thanks for the info.  Yeah, I had independently thought of the same thing and just expensed VMware Workstation Pro.  

bhanukir7, also thanks for sending those instructions.  They will be useful in case a few of our guys end up needing to do the same thing and our budget doesn't allow.  This will allow us to better leverage this free product to do more complex things:-)
